Synopsis: In a series of brief vignettes the authors bring to life international trade and its actors, and also demonstrate that economic activity cannot be divorced from social and cultural contexts. In the process they make clear that the seemingly modern concept of economic globalisation has deep historical roots.
"If you teach world history from 1500, you'll want to assign this book. It is filled with engaging essays about ordinary people whose day-to-day activities connected them to the global economy. Pomeranz and Topik avoid abstract generalities; instead they offer a truly global buffet of interesting accounts that makes sense of economic history in the modern era--the world that trade created." --Mary Jane Maxwell, Green Mountain College
"In this new edition, Pomeranz and Topik present a broadly inclusive portrayal of the development of international commerce. The authors blend previously published articles into a coherent series of vignettes that capture the trend of trade over the past 600 years. ... This volume offers a balance to traditional approaches to trade history and is noteworthy for its attention to the role of Asia in the development of world commerce. ... Recommended. Academic audiences, upper-division undergraduate and above; general readers; professionals." --Choice
"Undergraduate or even high school students in world history classes should respond well to the non-academic prose and to the often off-beat topics. ... Professors in world history classes can profitably use The World That Trade Created, as I have, to reinforce concepts covered in lecture or in standard textbooks, as a source for lecture material or for student presentations, or for student papers analyzing one or another course theme." --World History Connected
