The Rise of the Rich: A New View of Modern World History

Gran outlines the structure of this new paradigm, building upon meta-narrative concepts from Marxism to liberalism.Rather than a history of clashing civilizations, he identifies a history of resolving conflicts through negotiations among wealthy classes in various regions.

Far-reaching in its historical scope, Gran's work lays the foundation for a critical rethinking of world history and offers a vital contribution the field.
