This volume addresses a key concern of historians and social scientists today by undermining conventional assumptions of a binary division between modern European nation states and pre modern Asian empires. It brings together historians of the Qing Ottoman Mughal and British Indian empires to address the modern transformation of these regions without dividing world history into western and non Western. What is unusual is the focused attention on early modern non European empires which contained many apparently modern institutions and processes examined within the unifying theme of modernity. With the realization that major empires of Eurasia such as the Mughal Indian Ottoman and Qing Chinese empires shared many features with European imperial formations including British India this book fills the vital need of giving more attention to the non European world. 332 pp. Bookseller Inventory #
