Imperial by design: Field models in C. A. Bayly's remaking the modern world, 1900-2015

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Teachers of world history will welcome this book as an important addition not just to our store of knowledge about the remaking of the modern world, but to our repertoire of methods for understanding how the global emerged as a condition of colonial and postcolonial modernity. For in addition to being an attempt to explain how the global crises of the early twentieth century helped to "engender a revival of the parochial" (p. 326) in the present, C. A. Bayly's Remaking the Modern World, 1900-2015 offers a set of design principles for how to imagine that historical process through a combination of diachronic and synchronic approaches.
