La Belt and Road Initiative, l’imponente programma cinese che mira a connettere e a integrare economicamente l'Asia con l'Europa, ha radici in un passato lontano. La Nuova Via della Seta vuole infatti ripercorrere le antiche strade e riprodurre i fecondi scambi commerciali, interculturali e interreligiosi che si sono realizzati lungo questi percorsi. Il libro riprende questa storia affascinante, raccontando le storie di uomini che hanno compreso le connessioni profonde e possibili tra universi distanti tra loro, traghettando saperi e insegnamenti religiosi tra paesi e aree diverse dell’Eurasia.

La scoperta dei nuovi mondi fu anche la scoperta di uomini mai prima d'allora apparsi nelle grandi storie universali. Il racconto di questo libro, ricco di volti e di storie, si snoda dal Messico alla Cina, passando per le isole Molucche e il Perù, ma anche per le botteghe dei tipografi veneziani e le grandi corti rivali di Spagna e d'Inghilterra. Ci svela così un Rinascimento dagli orizzonti globali, in cui il recupero dell'antichità classica si accompagnò a una disorientante scoperta: le culture con cui gli europei erano entrati in contatto fra Quattro e Cinquecento avevano anch'esse un passato da decifrare. Qual era la storia di popolazioni, come gli indios delle Americhe, di cui gli europei non avevano mai sentito parlare? In che modo spiegare le tracce di tempi lontani di cui non davano conto né la Bibbia, né gli autori greci e latini? Come riconciliare un'improvvisa molteplicità di storie con il crescente senso di unità del globo? Le risposte che furono date a queste domande si misurarono con la difficile sfida della varietà del mondo che segna ancora il nostro presente.

The epic story of the scientists through the ages who have sought answers to life’s biggest mystery: How did it begin? In this essential and illuminating history of Western science, Bill Mesler and H. James Cleaves II seek to answer the most crucial question in science: How did life begin? They trace the trials and triumphs of the iconoclastic scientists who have sought to solve the mystery, from Darwin’s theory of evolution to Crick and Watson’s unveiling of DNA. This fascinating exploration not only examines the origin-of-life question, but also interrogates the very nature of scientific discovery and objectivity.

World History: An Introduction provides readers with the knowledge and tools necessary to understand the global historical perspective and how it can be used to shed light on both our past and our present. A concise and original guide to the concepts, methods, debates and contents of world history, it combines a thematic approach with a clear and ambitious focus. Each chapter traces connections with the past and the present to explore major questions in world history: How did humans evolve from an endangered species to the most successful of them all? How has nature shaped human history? How did agricultural societies push human history in a new direction? How has humankind organized itself in ever more complex administrative systems? How have we developed new religious and cultural patterns? How have the paths of ‘The West’ and ‘The Rest’ diverged over the last five centuries? How, at the same time, has the world become more interconnected and "globalized"? How is this world characterized by growing gaps in wealth, poverty and inequality? Sharp and accessible, Eric Vanhaute’s introduction to this exciting field demonstrates that world history is more of a perspective than a single all-encompassing narrative: an instructive new way of seeing, thinking and doing. It is an essential resource for students of history in a global context.

The process of globalization has had profound, often destabilizing, effects on space, at all levels (i.e. local, regional, national, international). This revealing book analyzes, both theoretically and empirically, the effects of globalization over space. It considers, through a dialogue among different paradigms, the ways in which space has become more important in the global economy. Globalization has been advocated as a way of shrinking time and space which will lead to a homogenized global market; a suggestion challenged in differing ways and with a variety of approaches by all the contributors to this volume. Leading authorities from a range of disciplines are represented amongst this impressive list of contributors, including Eric Sheppard, Bjørn Asheim, Richard Walker and Peter Swann. The chapters demonstrate persuasively the continuing, and even increasing, role of space in the global economy, and throughout, the book covers viewpoints from the fields of: international political economy economic geography regional and local economics. This impressive volume, which contains a selection of the best in contemporary scholarship, will be of interest to the international arena of academicians, policy makers and professionals in these or related fields.

Until very recently, historians have looked at the past with the tools of the nineteenth century. But globalization has fundamentally altered our ways of knowing, and it is no longer possible to study nations in isolation or to understand world history as emanating from the West. This book reveals why the discipline of global history has emerged as the most dynamic and innovative field in history—one that takes the connectedness of the world as its point of departure, and that poses a fundamental challenge to the premises and methods of history as we know it. What Is Global History? provides a comprehensive overview of this exciting new approach to history. The book addresses some of the biggest questions the discipline will face in the twenty-first century: How does global history differ from other interpretations of world history? How do we write a global history that is not Eurocentric yet does not fall into the trap of creating new centrisms? How can historians compare different societies and establish compatibility across space? What are the politics of global history? This in-depth and accessible book also explores the limits of the new paradigm and even its dangers, the question of whom global history should be written for, and much more. Written by a leading expert in the field, What Is Global History? shows how, by understanding the world's past as an integrated whole, historians can remap the terrain of their discipline for our globalized present.
