New York ; Basingstoke : Palgrave Macmillan, 2010, XXXII-301 p.
A distinguished international team of historians examines the dynamics of global and regional change in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Providing uniquely broad coverage, encompassing North and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia, and China, the chapters shed new light on this pivotal period of world history.
Offering fresh perspectives on:
• the American, French, and Haitian Revolutions
• the break-up of the Iberian empires
• the Napoleonic Wars.
The volume also presents ground-breaking treatments of world history from an African perspective, of South Asia’s age of revolutions, and of stability and instability in China. The first truly global account of the causes and consequences of the transformative ‘Age of Revolutions’, this collection presents a strikingly novel and comprehensive view of the revolutionary era as well as rich examples of global history in practice.
