For some time we have been lamenting the absence of historical work which takes serious account of advances in the social sciences. Individual monographs focussing in specific context have appeared but here is the first attempt to apply this approach to global Christianity and as it does so it takes substantial account of the missionary contribution and avoids simplistic conclusions based on unsubstantiated generalisations. Throughout there is strong interaction between history and the social sciences in discussing the contribution of Christianity to the transformation of society. This is a composite work drawing on the expertise of experts in their field mainly from the (north) Americas.
