Globalization and Transculturality from Antiquity to the Pre-Modern World, ed. by Serena Autiero and Matthew A. Cobb, Routledge, 2021

This book explores how globalization and transculturality are useful theoretical tools for studying pre-modern societies and their long-distance connections. Among the themes explored are how these concepts can enhance our understanding of trade networks, spread of religions, diffusion of global fashions, migration of technologies, public and private initiatives and wider cultural changes. This book provides a fresh point of view on global issues relating to the past; allowing us to look anew at developments in the contemporary world.
