Big Data in History introduces the project to create a world-historical archive, tracing the last four centuries of historical dynamics and change. Chapters address the archive's overall plan, how to interpret the past through a global archive, the missions of gathering records, linking local data into global patterns, and exploring the results.
Patrick Manning is Mellon Professor of World History and Director of the World History Center at the University of Pittsburgh, USA. A leader in world-historical scholarship and institution-building, with specialization in Africa and the African diaspora, he now directs an effort to create a world-historical archive.
