Format: Paperback
World History is a daunting field... perhaps no single discipline asks so much of its practitioners and yet provides them with so little training or such vague methodology. With _Navigating World History_ Pat Manning helps to amend this failing by providing a concise, engaging, and erudite history of the field and also an analysis of its various paradigms, pitfalls and potentials.
Researchers, teachers and students who are new to the field will find Manning's work an invaluable guide to help locate their own efforts within the often overwhelming context that is World History.
Truly and outstanding work. A doff of the cyber-cap to Prof. Manning!

HASH(0xa3af657c) out of 5 stars For all current and future historians Sept. 13 2015
By Jessica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Manning's book is a timeline of the process that world history has taken as a discipline in development. To understand the need for world history, and its evolution over the years, Manning's text is a necessity, particularly for those who plan to be a part of the future of "history" as recorders and interpreters of it.
