Bringing together scholars from around the world, this first book in the Palgrave Macmillan Series in Transnational History raises the question of how we can get away from the contemporary language of globalization, to identify meaningful, global ways of defining historical events and processes in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Contributors trace the historical trajectories of notions of world order, while proposing cutting-edge transnational and global approaches. The essayists grapple with broad and critical questions, including the role of global discourses, the politics of new global movements, the impact of global intellectual developments, and the emergence of competing visions of world order.
