Routledge Studies on History and Globalization
History has given us globalization, both as a scholarly and public issue, and this transnational process has grabbed the interest of commentators and experts over the past decade or so. In the public realm, the phenomenon remains a buzzword for international exchanges. As defined by scholars, globalization accounts for economic expansion – including mobility of labor, goods, money, information, and natural resources. It touches scientific and technological developments, music and the arts, and the political and institutional change. As it intersects with the history of American foreign relations, globalization reflects traditional national security concerns as well as national ideals, humanitarianism, markets, business, technology, and culture.
Books in this series thus focus on transnational themes in exciting ways that speak to the contemporary interests of historians and scholars, as well as the general public.
