New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2007. 276 pp. $74.95 (cloth). The historical study of globalization has entered its adolescence. This volume's forward notwithstanding, it can no longer be said that the field has been ceded to social scientists, that historians need to provide the necessary "context" for global integration, or that historians need to embrace transnational approaches to global history. These challenges have been met by a succession of thoughtful works over the past decade. The task now for historians is how to implement the ideas this infant historiography has advanced. It is time to actually write the history of globalization. The volume under review is thus a welcome addition, meeting the challenges of global history head-on.
