TRANSNATIONAL HISTORY by PIERRE-YVES SAUNIER

This is a lively and lucid look at the emerging discipline of Transnational history. A look at the way history is being researched seeing the manner in which the local also had connections with the beyond. No use of jargon is a major plus point. And I loved the author's cheeky sense of humour.



First Line: But not only is it true that no country can be understood without taking account of all the past; it is also true that we cannot select a stretch of land and say we will limit our study to this land; for local history can only be understood in the light of the history of the world.
