Covering the period 17801914, The Birth of the Modern World shows how events in Asia, Africa, and South America from the decline of the eighteenth-century Islamic empires to the anti-European Boxer rebellion of 1900 in China had a direct impact on European and American history. And conversely, how the ripple effects of crises such as the European revolutions and the American Civil War worked their way through to the rest of the world. None of the great themes of the nineteenth-century world the rise of the modern state, industrialisation, liberalism, imperialism, and the progress of world religions is untouched by the novel perspectives of this compelling new history.About the Author:
