Promotional Information

Conceptually 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, author of The Propriety of Liberty: Persons, Passions, and Judgement in Modern Political Thought

About the Author

Samuel Moyn is a professor in the Department of History at Columbia University. He is the editor of Pierre Rosanvallon's Democracy Past and Future and the author of The Last Utopia: Human Rights in History. Andrew Sartori is associate professor of history at New York University. He is the author of Bengal in Global Concept History: Culturalism in the Age of Capital and the coeditor of From the Colonial to the Postcolonial: India and Pakistan in Transition.


As intellectual history takes a global turn, the field urgently needs inspiring examples and salutary skepticism. Global Intellectual History provides both in equal measure through multiple models drawn from exceptionally broad expanses of both time and space. The result is a milestone, a collection of the first importance for global historians and intellectual historians alike. -- David Armitage, Harvard University, author of Foundations of Modern International Thought
