How do I find a book? Can I borrow this item? Can I get a copy? Uniquely compared with any time before or since, the 19th century which from this perspective extended well into the interwar years was the era of diasporas and migrations on a massive scale. It was a time when expanding cities and closing frontiers, in different but complementary ways, presented unprecedented challenges and opportunities, and when white men hunted and slaughtered wildlife across the globe on a scale — and with a determined relish — that seem incomprehensible today.
It was a period when nationalism, and the cult of the nation, reached new levels; but for most of the world, the default mode of organisation was in fact empire. And it was a time when many monarchies reinvented themselves though not all: vide China , while progress towards democracy was geographically confined for men and even more circumscribed for women. Since this book runs to almost 1, pages of text, and includes more than 3, endnotes and a bibliography listing well over 3, items, it is impossible to do it full and adequate justice, even in a lengthy review such as this. Part monster-piece, part masterpiece, its limitations are inescapably those of the global history genre: from one perspective, the book is too long and too detailed; from another its coverage is very uneven, and subjects such as gender and culture receive inadequate attention; there is no treatment of the first world war, although the author insists that his 19th century did not end until the s; readers expecting a clear chronology will be sorely disappointed; and there is a sense in which the whole never quite becomes greater than the sum of its parts.
