Editorial Reviews


"Provides a refreshing perspective on how the European drive for colonization and exploration created a need for new technologies and a wealth of accurate natural history investigations."

"As these uniformly excellent essays demonstrate, the task of constructing histories of science that provide cogent narratives about scientific practices might be described, in one way or another, as 'global' is hugely demanding. . . . the essays reviewed here represent an exciting beginning to a larger project with much promise."
British Journal for the History of Science 

“This volume shows convincingly that bringing together perspectives from both history of science and world history opens new and fascinating perspectives on the way scientific knowledge developed within an expanding and more interconnected world. It is a welcome and original contribution to the broad debate on the nature and impact of scientific knowledge in a multifocal, global perspective.”
—Eric Vanhaute, Ghent University

“This is an exciting project that reflects a trend in recent historiography to broaden the scope from microstudies by bringing in perspectives from both global history and the history of knowledge. It is a timely contribution to history more generally and will be warmly welcomed not only by historians of science but also by global and imperial historians as well.”
—Staffan Müller-Wille, University of Exeter

"Ambitious, thought-provoking, and informed by cutting edge historiography, this book is an important offering to the many fields with which it intersects."
—Qiong Zhang,
Journal of World History 

“By editing these three volumes, Patrick Manning, Abigail Owen, Daniel Rood, and Mat Savelli have done the discipline a huge service. All three volumes are essential reading for historians of science regardless of their specialization, and they reveal the marked importance of the history of science for understanding global developments in the past millennium.”
