By Jürgen Osterhammel

Una historia worldwide de l. a. época que vio nacer el mundo en que vivimos: un largo siglo xix que comienza en 1760 y concluye hacia 1920. Todo lo que importa conocer, en una visión que abarca el mundo entero, está en estas páginas, que se despliegan en una doble secuencia de «panoramas» (con el análisis de ocho esferas de los angeles realidad, como niveles de vida, ciudades, fronteras, imperios y naciones o el estado) y de «temas», que abarcan desde l. a. energía y l. a. industria hasta l. a. religión. Esto le permite a Osterhammel tratar las grandes cuestiones con una perspectiva de historia overall, hablándonos de las migraciones, el retroceso del nomadismo, el colonialismo, l. a. diplomacia y los angeles guerra, las revoluciones, el oro y las finanzas, l. a. alfabetización y los angeles escuela… El reconocimiento que ha recibido es common. Fritz Stern asegura que es «la obra más importante de historia aparecida desde el ultimate de los angeles guerra fría»; Jürgen Kocka que «es uno de los libros de historia más importantes de las últimas décadas»; Sir David Cannadine que «eleva a un nuevo nivel el estudio de l. a. historia mundial» y Jonathan Sperber afirma que Orsterhammel es «el Fernand Braudel del siglo xix».
