Bibliography for Global History
Spring 2004
 

Note: This bibliography is not intended to be comprehensive; it is rather the references that I have collected on my computer while preparing for this class. Lack of proper formatting is another result of this origin, but it should serve the purpose. In particular, it contains the full references for all of the reading assignments.
