Running head: ANALYSIS OF CHAPTER 6 ANALYZING CHAPTER 6 NAME INSTITUTION AFFILIATION 1 CHAPTER 6 2 The chapter largely explores the role of history in giving a definitive understanding of the globalization concept. It is imperative that one notes and understands that globalization is a historical process that has taken place over a long period of time and that the chapter tries to put into perspective just how much role has history been instrumental in shaping the debate on globalization. The one insight offered in the chapter is the need to ensure that one does not fall for the trap of the tendency to explore what the chapter refers to as ‘traditional history’ in analysis of globalization. This traditional history is one that tends to place emphasis on time, place and local conditions as a means upon which the events are interpreted. The chapter warns that having such a means of approaching globalization would not only be limiting but also flawed. The example offered in the chapter is the notion on Euro centrism. This concept is construed to mean as period when European scholar got into dominance and conveniently forgot about the rest of the world and then went ahead to view the rest of the world as deficient. This just helps to reinforce the point on why history should be analyzed with a cautious view when used in the interpretation of history (Axford, 2013). The other idea in the chapter is the different ways in which history is recorded which may in the long run be prejudicial in giving a true representation of the facts as they took place. Recording of history should be based on objectivity and not subjectivity. Many a times, there seems a if there does not exist a difference between either of these two aspects and that is why it would be hard for globalization as a concept to be based on history. An interesting point brought about in the chapter is the historical view of globalization as being a concept of the western world. Well, it needs to be stated categorically that globalization is not a CHAPTER 6 3 concept that is confined to the Western civilization. What this argument purports is that the rest of the world has not undergone globalization. Nothing could be further from the truth as globalization is a multidimensional process and it should be addressed from such a dynamic approach. The Western world may have undergone its own form of historical globalization but this should not imply that it forms a definitive and acceptable historic claim to be the source of such globalization. The chapter has a big question in its content that it fully does not apply itself to answer. The big question is what is the actual role of history in the globalization concept? I am inclined to adopt a view that while history may actually have a role in determining various aspects of globalization, its reliability is what makes it unattractive. It is also important to note that there isn’t a single interpretation of history and this further complicates the debate on why it should be used in addressing globalization. The other reason is that history is largely contextual and to create a link of different events which may or may not be related is quite challenging, yet this is what globalization is concerned about. Conclusively, history may be applied in the globalization debate but its application must also be hinged on acknowledgement of its limitations. CHAPTER 6 4 References Axford, B. (2013).
