Histories of Global Inequality: New Perspectives
This book argues that inequality is not just about numbers, but is also about lived, historical experience. It supplements economic research and offers a comprehensive stocktaking of existing thinking on global inequality and its historical development. The book is interdisciplinary, drawing upon regional and national perspectives from around the world, while seeking to capture the multidimensionality and multi-causality of global inequalities. The Introduction ‘Chapter 1 Histories of Global Inequality: Introduction’ is open access.
Mnemonic Solidarity: Global Interventions
This open access book, the first volume in our new series ‘Entangled Memories in the Global South’, provides a concise introduction to a critical development in memory studies. A global memory formation has emerged since the 1990s, in which memories of traumatic histories in different parts of the world have become entangled, reconciled, contested, conflicted and negotiated across borders. In chapters focusing on Europe, East Asia and Africa, five scholars respond to these challenges from a range of disciplinary perspectives in the humanities.
The Palgrave Encyclopedia of Imperialism and Anti-Imperialism
Now in its second edition, this remains the definitive reference work for students and scholars interested in the theory and history of imperialism and anti-imperialism from the sixteenth century to the present day. Written by an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars, it provides detailed studies of imperialism’s roots, goals, methods and impact around the world. It also explores the rich and varied tradition of anti-imperialism, focusing on its most significant leaders, intellectuals, theories and social movements.
Palgrave Macmillan Transnational History Series
This book series, edited by Akira Iriye and Rana Mitter, seeks to develop scholarship on the transnational connections of societies and peoples in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; provide a forum in which work on transnational history from different periods, subjects, and regions of the world can be brought together in fruitful connection; and explore the theoretical and methodological links between transnational and other related approaches such as comparative history and world history.
