Volume III of The Oxford History of Historical Writing contains essays by leading scholars on the writing of history globally during the early modern era, from 1400 to 1800. The volume proceeds in geographic order from east to west, beginning in Asia and ending in the Americas. It aims at once to provide a selective but authoritative survey of the field and, where opportunity allows, to provoke cross-cultural comparisons. This is the third of five volumes in a series that explores representations of the past from the beginning of writing to the present day, and from all over the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`unrolls the great map of mankind, displaying the historical consciousness of the human race in all its varieties.' Jonathan Clark, Times Literary Supplement
`Woolf has facilitated the critical surveys of materials that readers need to consider the circumstances that have shaped historical thought and practice on a truly global scale. Compiled by an international team of some 150 contributors, this series has already begun to stimulate new research and innovative teaching within and beyond the west, addressing if not correcting, any worries over the intellectual and cultural range of historical practice beyond Europe.' Adam Budd, History
