We have adopted a comprehensive definition of globalization that is simply based on geographically expanding networks of transactions, where transactions may be of any type, and may have occurred at any time. This naturally supports a strongly historical perspective that includes trade, migration, transportation, communication, empires, and so on.
We welcome additional materials for inclusion and suggestions for links to related resources.
