Abstract

Book Reviews Tributary Empires in Global History. Edited by peter fibiger bang and c. a. bayly. New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2011. 336 pp. $90.00 (cloth); $29.95 (paper). Consisting of fourteen different essays divided into three sections, Bang and Bayly's Tributary Empires in Global History provides a sense of the current state of the field regarding the study of premodern empire. The geographical and temporal scope of the essays ranges from ancient Rome to British India, and also includes the Ottoman, Mughal, Safavid, Mongol, Habsburg, and Russian empires.1 As underscored by a quotation from Marc Bloch used as an epigraph to the volume--l'unité de lieu n'est que désordre / Seule l'unité de problème fait centre 2--the editors' aim is not in-depth coverage of one, or even several, locations or empires so much as the promotion of fruitful interchange between scholars working on the question or "problem" of tributary empires more generally. One of the implicit goals of the editors seems to be to provide a longer-term perspective as a background to current debates about empire, which tend to focus either on American empire in the political realm or on relatively recent Western colonial empires in the scholarly realm.
