A Cultural History of Western Empires
Author(s):

A Cultural History of Western Empires presents historians, and scholars and students of related fields, with the first comprehensive and interdisciplinary overview of the cultural history of empire from ancient times to modernity. With six highly illustrated volumes covering 2500 years, this is the definitive reference work on the subject, comprising:

Volume 1. A Cultural History of Western Empires in Antiquity (500BCE-800CE)
Volume 2. A Cultural History of Western Empires in the Middle Ages (800-1450)
Volume 3. A Cultural History of Western Empires in the Renaissance (1450-1650)
Volume 4. A Cultural History of Western Empires in the Age of Enlightenment (1650-1800)
Volume 5. A Cultural History of Western Empires in the Age of Empire (1800-1920)
Volume 6. A Cultural History of Western Empires in the Modern Age (1920-2000+)

Each volume adopts the same thematic structure, covering: War, Trade, Natural worlds, Labor, Mobility, Sexuality, Resistance and Race, enabling readers to trace one theme throughout history, as well as gaining a thorough overview of each individual period.



Review(s):
“Each volume could successfully stand alone as a reference work on an era: Antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Age of Enlightenment, the Age of Empire, and the Modern Age ... The introductory essay to each is a valuable resource for comparing traditional political and economic histories with the more critical and cultural works presented in subsequent chapters. Accompanying each volume is a list of illustrations, notes, further reading, and an index ... Overall, students seeking a comparative, interdisciplinary, and compelling account of the spread of Western empires will find much of interest here. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty.” – CHOICE
