Where do ideas fit in historical accounts that take an expansive, global view of human movements and events? Teaching intellectual history scholars to incorporate transnational perspectives into their work, while also advising them how to handle the challenges and controversies that may arise, this original resource explains the concepts, practice, concerns, and promise of "global intellectual history," featuring essays from leading scholars on an array of approaches taking shape across the discipline.

"Conceptual and substantively sophisticated, this volume of essays will be widely welcomed by a variety of historians. The field is a burgeoning one, but there is little to shape it collectively at present. This volume is among the first to focus on the comparative merits of global intellectual history." - Duncan Kelly, University of Cambridge
