The Qing Empire in the Fabric of Global History

(p.108) 6 The Qing Empire in the Fabric of Global History
The Prospect of Global History

Matthew W. Mosca

Oxford University Press

This chapter offers a brief review of dominant approaches to placing early modern China in its world context, discussing major findings, ongoing debates, and emerging challenges. Attention to different geographic regions, periods of time, and topics of research, including economic, political, and cultural and intellectual history, have led to competing judgements about the degree to which the Qing Empire was integrated into global developments. Against this background, and with reference to the case of the Qing official Ghombojab, it argues that the rise of global history can complement research that focus on the Qing empire or China as a whole, by emphasizing the differential impact of global forces on individual Qing subjects and their reciprocal individual contributions towards shaping those forces.

Keywords:   early modern China, Qing Empire, Ghombojab, global history, Mongols, Inner Asia, cartography
