I suffered through this book for a world history class, it has to be one of the driest pieces of printed material I have ever laid eyes on. When I first began reading it, I thought that it might be interesting, as it focuses on how historians document history, something I've never really thought of before. But now I know why I've never thought of it. It's boring.

Perhaps this book has simply given me a poor first impression of the subject. Manning seems out of touch with anything modern(referring
Good historiography of the study and teaching of world history. Leaves me with as many questions as before, but at least I see that others are asking the same questions too.
One professor's view of the emerging study of global history, this book was informative but very poorly written and a very, very dull read.
Good book for cataloging trends in world history study and methods for world history study.
