about this item

An emphasis on global structures and forces tends to privilege elites and their accomplishments, especially in the grand narratives of student textbooks. This book is an antidote to such studies and places 'ordinary' people and subordinated subjects at the heart of its analysis, arguing that disruption and dissent are overlooked agents of historical change. The contributors range from leaders in the field to rising stars, and cover themes including:

- Religious conversions- Political revolutions- Labor Struggles- Body Poltiics

Each chapter takes a global view of the topic at hand, creating an accessible study of its subject from 1750 to the present day.World Histories From Below has the potential to refocus our entire approach to teaching world history.
