Abstract

[Italiano]:Questo volume è il frutto di un convegno sull’opera di Christopher Bayly tenutosi a Napoli nel marzo del 2016. A meno di un anno dalla morte, gli organizzatori intendevano promuovere una prima ricognizione del ricco e complesso lascito scientifico dello storico inglese, chiamando a collaborarvi un gruppo di studiosi di varie competenze specialistiche. Ciascuno dei sette saggi si focalizza su uno delle straordinaria sequenza di grandi libri con i quali Bayly ha contribuito a dissodare, nell’arco di un quarantennio, terreni di ricerca tra i più avanzati della storiografia internazionale: le radici locali del movimento nazionalista indiano (Maurizio Griffo), il ruolo della società autoctona nell’instaurazione del dominio europeo in India (Michelguglielmo Torri), la natura e i limiti del potere coloniale (Guido Abbattista), la genesi del Secondo Impero britannico (Teodoro Tagliaferri), la transizione alla modernità globale (Marco Meriggi),la globalizzazione del liberalismo e del nazionalismo (Maurizio Isabella, Laura Di Fiore). Obiettivo comune degli autori è quello di illustrare le tappe salienti del percorso che ha condotto Bayly, in virtù del successo arriso a The Birth of the Modern World, 1780-1914 (2004), a diventare figura tra le più rappresentative dell’odierno revival della World History./[English]:This volume is the outcome of a conference on the work of Christopher Bayly held in Naples on March 2016. At less than one year from his untimely death, the convenors called on a group of specialists in several disciplinary areas, on which Bayly has left his enduring mark, to collaborate on a first survey of the rich and complex scientific legacy of the English historian. Each essay focuses on one of the extraordinary succession of great works by which he pioneered innovative approaches throughout his academic career. The collection as a whole provides therefore an account of Bayly’s foremost contributions to the different scholarly fields in which he made repeated breakthroughs, over a period of five decades, on some of the most advanced research fronts of international historiography: the local roots of Indian nationalism, the transition from pre-colonial to colonial India and the role of indigenous society in the establishment of European domination, the nature and limits of colonial power, the rise of the Second British Empire, the history of globalization and the nineteenth-century turn towards planetary modernity, the transregional development of liberalism and nationalism. The common aim of the authors is to highlight the stages of the path through which Bayly emerged, at the beginnings of the 2000s, as a key figure in the current revival and renewal of world history.
