Reviews

'One of the most significant scholarly projects of the last decade has involved breaking out of the nation-state framework in order to examine influential transnational circuits and interconnections. Akira Iriye and Pierre-Yves Saunier have now edited an indispensable resource for this new transnational history. By offering a broad array of topics and drawing upon the expertise of over three hundred of the world's leading scholars, these skillful editors have produced a freshly conceived and authoritative volume that will appeal to libraries and historians worldwide'

-Professor Emily S Rosenberg, Department of History, University of California, Irvine, USA

'With articles written by experts from 25 countries and from six continents this dictionary is an impressive and inspiring example of transnational history as a transnational practice. The Editors have done a great job to give this new field in historiography a convincing intellectual status and to open the mind of the next generation to the idea of global entanglements and cultural transfers as the very basis of modernity'

-Professor Matthias Middell, University of Leipzig, Germany

'...[an] enterprising volume...There are numerous encyclopedic guides to world history but all are organised along national lines. I do not know of any other reference work which attempts to cover recent world history from a transnational perspective...All university libraries catering for academic work in any aspect of modern history, as well as in international relations, politics, law, etc. should seriously consider buying this book.' - Reference Reviews

'...a remarkable feat of transnational academia...authoritative, accessible, and highly readable...an important new resource,

strongly recommended for libraries catering to students and scholars at all levels.' - Journal of Global History
