Writing the History of the Global

Prasannan Parthasarathi

British Academy

The methods of comparative history pose an analytic focus for global history. Comparison must analyse not just one or two, but multiple paths of economic and historical development in the early modern world. Comparison must reach beyond the stereotypes of a dynamic Europe and stagnant Asia to show the strikingly different needs and imperatives leading towards different paths of economic and technological change.

Keywords:   comparative history, multiple paths, technological change, dynamism, stagnation, Eurasia
