The exchange of ideas makes history as surely as the exchange of
gunfire. The Age of Globalization (previously published as Under
Three Flags) is an account of the unlikely connections that made
up late nineteenth-century politics and culture. In particular,
Benedict Anderson examines the links between militant anarchists
in Europe and the Americas and the anti-imperialist uprisings in
Cuba, China, and Japan. Told through the complex intellectual
interactions of two great Filipino writers—the political novelist
José Rizal and the pioneering folklorist Isabelo de los Reyes—The
Age of Globalization is a brilliantly original work on how global
networks shaped the nationalist movements of the time.
“Fiercely, movingly local, concentrated on a handful of remarkable men and fateful years, but also expansively global.”
“Fascinating insights into the global flow of anarchic and anticolonial ideas.”
“A formidably erudite beautifully illustrated study.”
“Exciting and important.”
