by Georg G. Iggers

English summary: This is the first text on historiography to adopt a comparative, global perspective for the modern era looking not only at developments in the West but at other historiographical traditions in East Asia, India, the Middle East, Latin America, and Sub-Saharan Africa as well. Beginning in the late eighteenth century, the book examines the impact of Western ideas of history on historical writing elsewhere and their interaction with the local traditions in an age of imperialism and colonialism. The authors argue that Western ideas of history were nowhere directly adopted but were accommodated to long standing intellectual and cultural traditions facing the challenges of modernization in an increasingly global environment. The book follows these developments into the current period and discusses the criticisms of postmodernism and postcolonialism of the modern historical profession and the reactions and resonances of historians around the world today. Originally published in 2008, this is not a direct translation of the English edition but a careful revision and updating taking into account the discussions of recent years, With this in mind certain sections have been rewritten, particularly those dealing with global history, feminist and gender history, history and memory, Marxism, and Latin America. German description: Ein internationales Gemeinschaftswerk, das erstmals die Vielfalt der Geschichtsschreibungen in aller Welt als Panorama vor Augen fuhrt. Weltregionen sind geografische Areale, Klimazonen, sie reprasentieren Kulturen und Ethnien unterschiedlichster Art. Sie weisen die vielfaltigsten Geschichten in Raum und Zeit auf. Dass uberdies jede dieser Weltkulturen ihre je eigene Geschichtsschreibung hervorgebracht hat, ist erst im Zeitalter interkultureller Vernetzung und Kommunikation ganz ins Bewusstsein getreten. Es sind diese Geschichtskulturen, deren Charakteristik, Wechselwirkung, Erkenntnisinteressen und politische Motive so faszinieren. Das Werk bietet erstmalig eine vergleichende Zusammenschau der Welthistoriografie.
