en Limba Engleză Paperback – 18 Aug 2017
Bringing together historical sociologists from Sociology and International Relations, this collection lays out the international, transnational, and global dimensions of social change. It reveals the shortcomings of existing scholarship and argues for a deepening of the 'third wave' of historical sociology through a concerted treatment of transnational and global dynamics as they unfold in and through time. The volume combines theoretical interventions with in-depth case studies. Each chapter moves beyond binaries of 'internalism' and 'externalism,' offering a relational approach to a particular thematic: the rise of the West, the colonial construction of sexuality, the imperial origins of state formation, the global origins of modern economic theory, the international features of revolutionary struggles, and more. By bringing this sensibility to bear on a wide range of issue-areas, the volume lays out the promise of a truly global historical sociology.

'Global Historical Sociology is a virtuoso guide to bringing 'the global in' to the understanding of political and social history. This collection is a compelling, agenda-setting statement for both historical sociology and international relations. The editors, Julian Go and George Lawson, advance a persuasive theoretical case for this shared project, while the individual contributors dive more deeply into questions of empire, capitalism, and global modernity in chapters that are exemplars of historically-engaged social analysis.' Elisabeth S. Clemens, William Rainey Harper Professor of Sociology, University of Chicago
'Edited volumes don't always make much sense. This one does. It advances comparative historical sociology in a major way by drawing attention to its impact upon the external world, and upon the impact of that world on the global powers at the core of the modern polity. This is a new agenda, not to be missed.' John A. Hall, James McGill Professor of Comparative Historical Sociology at McGill University, Montreal
'In Global Historical Sociology, Go and Lawson have brought together in mutual conversation an impressive array of historical sociologists and International Relations scholars, all advancing the shared cause of global history. There is no doubt in my mind that this will become the go-to text for all IR scholars interested in historical sociology (and vice versa) for many years to come.' Ayşe Zarakol, Reader in International Relations, Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge
