      Summary
      • The Oxford History of Anglicanism is a major new and unprecedented international study of the identity and historical influence of one of the world's largest versions of Christianity. This global study of Anglicanism from the sixteenth century looks at how was Anglican identity constructed and contested at various periods since the sixteenth century; and what was its historical influence during the past six centuries. It explores not just the ecclesiastical and theological aspects of global Anglicanism, but also the political, social, economic, and cultural influences of this form of Christianity that has been historically significant in western culture, and a burgeoning force in non-western societies today. The chapters are written by international experts in their various historical fields which includes the most recent research in their areas, as well as original research. The series forms an invaluable reference for both scholars and interested non-specialists. Volume three of The Oxford History of Anglicanism explores the nineteenth century when Anglicanism developed into a world-wide Christian communion, largely, but not solely, due to the expansion of the British Empire. By the end of this period an Anglican Communion had come into existence as a diverse conglomerate of often competing Anglican identities with their often unresolved tensions and contradictions, but also with some measure of genuine unity. The volume examines the ways the various Anglican identities of the nineteenth century are both metropolitan and colonial constructs, and how they influenced the wider societies in which they formed Anglican Churches.

      Summary
      • AbstractThis analysis covers the period from 1925 to 2016 in respect of constructing national and global goals and targets in education and training. Tensions between global and national approaches to target-setting are identified. Equally, the ownership of the global target discourse is discussed along with its contested relevance to both developed and developing economies. The process of constructing Sustainable Development Goal 4 (on Education) is laid out against a background of this essential history. The milestones in this process include national initiatives on education for all in India and China, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UNESCO regional conferences on education, the world conferences on education in Jomtien, Dakar and Incheon, and the UN’s Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals. Across these and several other staging posts, the actual texts and framing of the goals and targets are subjected to critical review.

      Summary
      • Updated in its 9th edition, Understanding Global Conflict and Cooperation is a concise and penetrating introduction to world politics in an era of complex interdependence. This text employs lessons from theory and history to examine conflict and cooperating among global actors and thus to provide readers with a durable analytical framework. From twentieth and twenty-first century wars to global finance and global governance, Understanding Global Conflict and Cooperation, expands substantially on a classic work and continues to deliver a thought-provoking survey of international relations today.
      • Review: "Sometimes original scholars sound pedantic when addressing central issues of world politics; often policymakers speak in code or platitudes. Not so Professor Nye. As any reader will see, the work in your hands is lucid, direct, and concise. Reading Nye's writing on world politics is like watching Joe DiMaggio play center field or Yo-Yo Ma play the cello: he makes the difficult look easy."-from Robert O. Keohane's Foreword

      Five billion years of global change : a history of the land / Denis Wood.

      Summary
      • Demonstrating how the story of our past can help us better understand the present, geographer Denis Wood tells the story of our entire past, from the Big Bang to the World Wide Web. Five Billion Years of Global Change takes readers through the formation of the Earth's atmosphere, oceans, continents, and mountains; the origin of life; the evolution of the human species; the spread of agricultural production; and the growth of international trade. In a uniquely evocative and philosophical style, Wood shows how a greater knowledge of the interconnectedness of our world could potentially change the way we approach contemporary problems. This eye-opening book will be enjoyed by all readers interested in the history of our planet and concerned about its future.
      • Review: "Five Billion Years of Global Change is a dazzling intellectual journey that has the potential to alter profoundly the ways in which we think about our planet, human history, and our own lives. The book depicts an intricately interwoven physical reality at a multiplicity of scales, from aeons to nanosecond, from cosmos to the subatomic. Commanding a prodigious range of knowledge, Denis Wood writes in a captivating style all his own."--Wilbur Zelinsky, Department of Geography (Emeritus), The Pennsylvania State University This book offers a deep meditation on the relation between place and time as the environments in which we live. Not since Hofstadter s "Godel, Escher, Bach" has a single text presented a thesis at once so radical and completely formed. Every section overturns popular preconceptions. Time and again, what at first seems an absurd statement becomes fully evident a few pages later. It is this type of inversion of the common wisdom that makes the book an important delight. Readers of Wood s earlier work will not be disappointed: "Five Billion Years of Global Change "does for environmental studies and natural history what "The Power of Maps "did for cartography. --Tom Koch, author and adjunct professor, Department of Geography, University of British Columbia, Canada "This inspiring book bursts into the emerging field of Big History'--history writ across all time, from the Big Bang to today--with an exhilarating style and sweep that should put it at the top of the genre. Cosmologist of the quotidian, geographer of Earth's grandest processes, Wood takes us from the Initial Instant through the earth's formation, life's beginnings, continents' shiftings, civilizations' risings and fallings, and on to our own contemporary habitations on the land. A bold, original, and visionary work."--Kent Mathewson, Department of Geography and Anthropology, Louisiana State University"

      Summary
      • In a compact but comprehensive and clear narrative, this book explores the First World War from a genuinely global perspective. Putting a human face on the war, William Kelleher Storey takes into account individual decisions and experiences as well as environmental and technological factors such as food, geography, manpower, and weapons. He argues that the war profoundly changed the ways in which people imagined the landscape around them and thought about technology and the environment. Before the war, Europe and its colonies generally regarded industrial technology as an instrument of modernity; the landscape existed to be conquered, divided, and ruled. During and after the war, the costs of conquest became much higher, raising significant doubts about the value of progress. Soldiers experienced profound personal degradation, physical injuries, and mental collapse in the midst of nightmarish, technologically induced environmental conditions, which they vividly remembered when they formed new identities in the postwar world. Although people did not abandon thoughts of technological advance, after the war they had a keener sense of modernity's costs. Without neglecting traditional themes, Storey's deft interweaving of the role of environment and technology enriches our understanding of the social, political, and military history of the war, not only in Europe, but throughout the world.
      • Review: Hurrah for William Storey. Capitalizing on the insights of environmental and technological history, he has retold the story of World War I in a fresh and provocative way. By highlighting the role of nature and machines in that most awful conflict, his story helps us understand wars of today as well as those of the past. -- Edmund Russell William Storey's lucid new account of the First World War emphasizes the common struggle of all combatants against the improved sciences of killing on one side and the unyielding demands of geography and environment on the other. Refined aircraft, rain and rats, malnutrition, poignant flickers of imagination in protest: here is the shared war that united allies and foes. -- Maier, Charles The focus of this efficient study is distinct from the usual perspective. Storey looks at the environmental and technological factors that played a globally significant role in the unfolding of World War I. He contends that the war fundamentally changed the ways in which people took in their surroundings and the manner in which we relate to machines. Before the war, technology, from the viewpoint of industry, was part of the modern age--there to be harnessed. But once technology advanced the tools of war, the results of conquest become greater than anyone had experienced or imagined. A good choice for college students. Library Journal This narrative history of the Great War will better inform general readers concerning the causes and effects of the conflict, which continues to shape the destinies of millions of people across the world... Storey offers some fresh perspectives that make this survey interesting and useful... This is a well-written, easily digestible examination of a seminal conflict. Booklist In addition to providing a clear and insightful retelling of a familiar story, this 'concise global history' emphasizes the role of the environment and of new and old technologies... The most important global dimension of the 1914-1918 war was its consequences. There are sections specifically about the environment and technologies, and Storey weaves references to them throughout his narrative... Recommended. Choice William Storey's The First World War provides a succinct introduction to the history and significance of the Great War. It offers original perspectives on aspects of the war that are passed over too briefly in other books, such as the experiences of common soldiers and of women and the contribution of Africans to the war. It will prove valuable for undergraduate courses in twentieth-century world and European history. -- Daniel R. Headrick The book is particularly valuable for Storey's analysis of the generally overlooked environmental factors that affected operations, his discussion of the role of non-Europeans in the struggle, and his look at long-term global impact of the war, in terms of its social, cultural, and political effects, not only on the belligerents but also on colonial peoples world wide. This is an useful work for anyone interested in the First World War, and a particularly valuable one for those lacking much prior knowledge of the conflict, and as a recommended reading in a modern history course.

      Summary
      • Although this brief edition is two-thirds the length of its full-length counterpart, it retains coverage of all major themes and provides a truly global perspective on world history, without over-emphasising Europe or the U.S. "The Earth and Its Peoples" focuses on the interaction of human beings and the environment, using this central theme to compare different times, places and societies. Special emphasis is given to technology and how technological development underlies all human activity. Ideal for one-semester survey courses or courses where instructors want to supplement their textbook with many primary sources, this text has been carefully abbreviated to maintain the essential narrative of world history. Specific areas of improved coverage include the steam engine in Chapter 20, as well as the inclusion of recent events and developments throughout the world. Structural updates include the reorganisation of Chapters 2 and 3 and a new Chapter 11, "Mongol Eurasia and Its Aftermath," which combines the chapters on Western and Eastern Eurasia.

      Summary
      • Conflict and Cooperation: Documents on Modern Global History, second edition, is a collection of primary documents for the study of twentieth- and twenty-first-century history. The twentieth century was profoundly shaped by war. We saw, for the first time in human history, the possibility of a war that could destroy all human life on earth. However, this was also the century that witnessed genuine attempts to build cooperative global institutions designed to prevent war, to facilitate international communication, and to improve the human condition. Conflict and cooperation are the defining themes that weave together this collection of primary documents. The readings have been selected with the goal of making twentieth-century history accessible to students for whom these events are increasingly distant. The second edition of Conflict and Cooperation significantly expands the documents presented. Most importantly, the collection now features key documents related to technology and the environment. As well, important documents on Latin America and on the Islamic world have been included. The primary documents allow students to 'witness' essential moments in history through the words of the men and women who participated in and experienced these events.

      Summary
      • From almonds and pecans to pistachios, cashews and macadamias, nuts are as basic as food gets - just pop them out of the shell and into your mouth. The original health food, the vitamin-packed nut is now used industrially in confectionery and in all sorts of cooking. The first book to tell the full story of how nuts came to be in almost everything, Nuts takes readers on a gastronomic, botanical and cultural tour of the world. After tackling the surprisingly difficult problem of defining a nut - some foods we think of as nuts are actually seeds and some are fruits - award-winning food writer Ken Albala provides a fascinating account of how nuts have been cooked, prepared and exploited through history and around the world, from cultivation and harvesting to processing and consumption - or non-consumption, in the case of those with nut allergies. With scrumptious recipes, surprising facts and fascinating nuggets inside, this entertaining and informative book will delight lovers of almonds, hazelnuts, chestnuts and more.
      • Review: 'Embellished with clever illustrations and a nice selection of historical and contemporary recipes ... [an] outstanding series of food volumes.' - Wall Street Journal 'The Edible Series contains some of the most delicious nuggets of food and drink history ever. Every volume is such a fascinating and succinct read that I had to devour each in just a single sitting ... food writing at its best!' - Ken Hom, chef and author

      Summary
      • From the first barbecues of ancient Africa to Fijian pig and Chinese char siu, meat that's been slowly roasted over a smoky fire is enjoyed around the globe - and with an infinite variety of spices, sauces and sides. A muscular, sinewy account of this quintessentially red-blooded pursuit, Barbecue explores the history of this most primitive and essential of cooking techniques. Travelling to New Zealand for the Maoris' hangi, Hawaii for kalua pig, Mexico for barbacoa de cabeza and South Africa for a braai, Jonathan Deutsch and Megan J. Elias tell the story of the evolution of barbecue cooking methods and technology. The book explores the barbecue's place in society and culture, from Hawaiian feasts to political fundraisers and barbecue competitions. It also questions why the process of barbecuing is thought of as an exclusively masculine activity. With its mouthwatering recipes from around the world, Barbecue is the perfect gift for backyard grillers and professional barbecue competitors alike: a celebration of all things smoky, meaty and delicious.

      Summary
      • Abstract: This paper presents a synopsis of recent NBER studies of the history of corporate governance in Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, India, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Together, the studies underscore the importance of path dependence, often as far back into preindustrial period; legal system origin, though in a more nuanced form than mere statutory shareholder rights; and wealthy families. They also clarify the roles of ideologies, business groups, trust, institutional transplants, and politics in institutional evolution and financial development. Other themes are the universality of business insiders' investments in, entrenchment, and a possible behavioral basis for this.

The authors' approach reveals how humanity continues to shape and be shaped by the environment and how dominant structures and traditions are balanced and challenged by alternate beliefs.

      Summary
      • "For most of the twentieth century tin was fundamental for both warfare and welfare. The importance of tin is most powerfully represented by the tin can - an invention which created a revolution in food preservation and helped feed both the armies of the great powers and the masses of the new urban society. The trouble with tin was that economically viable deposits of the metal could only be found in a few regions of the world, predominantly in the southern hemisphere, while the main centers of consumption were in the industrialized north. The tin trade was therefore a highly politically charged economy in which states and private enterprise competed and cooperated to assert control over deposits, smelters and markets. Tin provides a particularly telling illustration of how the interactions of business and governments shape the evolution of the global economic trade; the tin industry has experienced extensive state intervention during times of war, encompasses intense competition and cartelization, and has seen industry centers both thrive and fail in the wake of decolonization. The history of the international tin industry reveals the complex interactions and interdependencies between local actors and international networks, decolonization and globalization, as well as government foreign policies and entrepreneurial tactics. By highlighting the global struggles for control and the constantly shifting economic, geographical and political constellations within one specific industry, this collection of essays brings the state back into business history, and the firm into the history of international relations"--
