"A World in the Making is a kind of anthropological journey taken by four historians that assumes all societies are "hot," and all people make history and always have. We argue in our emphasis on lives and livelihoods for a world constructed, altered, renovated, remade by ordinary people even as we acknowledge the genius of individual innovators, disruptors who broke the mold or struck out in some new direction."--Provided by publisher.
