Sinopsis y descripción del libro THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE WORLD: A GLOBAL HISTORY OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY

A monumental nineteenth-century story, The Transformation of the World offers a panoramic and multifaceted portrait of a world in transition.

Jürgen Osterhammel, an eminent scholar who has been called the Braudel of the 19th century, goes beyond the conventional Eurocentric and chronological accounts of the time, instead presenting a truly global history of impressive reach and towering scholarship.

It examines the powerful and complex forces that drove global change during the "long nineteenth century," taking readers from New York to New Delhi, from Latin American revolutions to the Taiping rebellion, from the dangers and promises of Europe's transatlantic labor markets to the hardships endured by nomadic and tribal peoples across the globe.

Osterhammel describes a world increasingly interconnected by telegraph, steamship and railways.

It explores the changing relationship between human beings and nature, analyzes the importance of cities, explains the role of slavery and its abolition in the emergence of new nations, challenges the widespread belief that the 19th century witnessed the triumph of the nation-state, and much more.

This is the long-awaited English edition of the successful and acclaimed German book, which is also being translated into Chinese, Polish, Russian and French.

Indispensable for any historian, The Transformation of the World sheds new light on this momentous epoch, showing how the nineteenth century paved the way for the global catastrophes of the twentieth century, but also how it gave rise to pacifism, liberalism, trade unions and countless other crucial events.
