Editorial Reviews

"Woolf has facilitated the critical surveys of materials that readers need to consider the circumstances that have shaped historical thought and practice on a truly global scale. Compiled by an international team of some 150 contributors, this series has already begun to stimulate new researchand innovative teaching within and beyond the west, addressing if not correcting, any worries over the intellectual and cultural range of historical practice beyond Europe." --Adam Budd, History
