This series makes recent scholarly work in world history available to a broad readership. World history has become both a popular teaching field and an increasingly active area for scholarly research, particularly as awareness grows of many phenomena--from migration to technology to popular culture to traditional topics such as war--that are illuminated by a focus neither national nor regional. This series seeks to enlarge the conversation among scholars and teachers pursuing world history of different kinds and in different institutional settings by publishing scholarly works informed by a world history perspective as well as books for classroom use.
