Diego Olstein is Associate Professor in the Department of History and Associate Director of the World History Center at the University of Pittsburgh, USA. He has published widely on Medieval Spain, World History, and historiography, and has taught and lectured on these subjects in Argentina, Israel, Europe, the US, Australia, and China.Review:
"This book is one of those remarkable volumes that is, at once, a basic guide to undergraduate students and a sophisticated roadmap for leaders in the profession Professor Olstein developed his interpretation not only out of his particular strengths of mind but because of his experience around the world... His skill in proposing clear historical generalizations makes it possible for readers to join him in seeing the order that lies within all the complexity of the world's detail." - Patrick Manning, University of Pittsburgh
'What is global history? It has clearly been on the rise lately, but its ascent has been coupled with much confusion as to how to define it, what it means, and how it can be written. Diego Olstein has boldly set out to bring some order to the chaos. The result is a systematic, original, and thought-provoking volume that will repay reading by anyone who is interested in the new frontiers of the historical profession, from beginning students to grizzled professionals.' - Erez Manela, Harvard University
"This is a very important book dealing with the challenge of thinking about history beyond single nation states and continents. With great talent for systematizing complex research landscapes, the author carefully differentiates between various historiographical approaches. Moreover, he identifies various patterns of thinking about history on larger scales illustrating the multifaceted nature of this growing field. It is one of the great merits of this book that its rich academic reflections do not only remain at an abstract, definitional level. Quite to the contrary, Olstein skillfully refers to illustrative examples and historical case studies, making the book also highly useful for a student audience." - Dominic Sachsenmaier, Jacobs University
'In this imaginative, learned, and lively book Diego Olstein shows us many ways that scholars have been moving well beyond national frameworks. Historians are not only looking at how national histories are alike and different, but at how they are connected. With great verve, and insight, this book puts on display a dozen ways of doing so. In telling us about the past achievements of history across borders he contributes mightily to its future'. - John Markoff, University of Pittsburgh
' How do you adopt a 'global' approach to the past? Over the last few decades, scholars have answered this question in a bewildering number of ways Thinking History Globally brings order to this chaos [It] examines the deep logic of historical thinking, and highlights what must be changed if we are to adopt a truly global outlook. Since nowadays it makes little sense to think about history except in global terms, what Thinking History Globally really seeks to do, is to redefine the historical discipline." - Yuval Noah Harari, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
'Provides readers with applied examples of how these approaches and cognitive patterns might actually be applied to different subjects. More than an entertaining read, the book is thus of great use for the professor or TA confronted with the question of, for example, what it actually means to write the First World War 'in a global context.'' - Timothy Nunan, Toynbee Prize Foundation

Descripción Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. 240 pages. Thinking History Globally means thinking about the past and the present beyond national borders, language barriers, and enclosed regions. There are four thinking strategies to gain global perspectives: comparing, connecting, conceptualizing, and contextualizing. Comparing is about contrasting between several cases and drawing new conclusions. Connecting is tracking the interdependences between cases and assessing their importance. Conceptualizing is recognizing that developments in one or several cases belong within a larger recurring pattern. Contextualizing is making sense of one case amidst developments world-wide. This book offers a practical guide into these strategies of thinking by applying them to multiple historical cases, ranging from the first civilizations and up to the First World War. While doing that, Olstein also presents the twelve branches of history that outstand in the application of these four strategies and in thinking history globally: comparative, relational, international, transnational, oceanic, global, world, and big histories, historical sociology, civilizational analysis, world-system approach, and history of globalization.
