Description: Architects of World History presents an innovative collection of original essays that introduce themes, characteristics, and scholars that are key to understanding contemporary approaches to the study of world history. Taking the form of intellectual biography, each chapter is written by an individual historian considered among the 'architects' of the field. The essays cover particular topics including environmental history, gender and world history, cultural interactions and colonialism, legal studies, "big history" among others. In each case the author introduces the theme, defining its parameters within world history, and exploring its potential future development. The essays also address the authors' own intellectual trajectories, the encounters and motivations that inspired their development as a world historian. These personal narratives are both engaging and revealing, shedding light on the experiences of these pioneering scholars, and the particular challenges and possibilities of world history.
