I am attaching the link below in memoriam of C. A. Bayly. Many in the H-World community will be familiar with his The Birth of the Modern World: Global Connections and Comparisons 1780-1914 as well as many of his other books.

Dear Prof. Ciotola et al.
Regarding the possible use of a theoretical perspective in world history:
Over the past 30 years I have been using the approach advocated by the late German sociologist Norbert Elias (1897-1990) for analyzing world history at all possible scales. This approach is based on explaining human behavior by looking at their interdependency relations throuhgn power balances.
Apologies! I would be happy to discuss frameworks on this forum, but I didn't want to "hijack" the post, and it never occurred to me that our profile do not have a "private message" option.
Since you first mentioned the issue, would you like to create a new post on h-net for this discussion? Otherwise my preferred email is: ciotola at sfsu dot edu.
I’ve been enjoying the discussion, but want to inject myself, to pick up on some issues that were raised:
Discussing issues such as the “relevance” or the “state of the field” of “world history” at the WHA conference or at the regional affiliates is certainly important. I would be happy to meet and be part of that discussion in Savannah and beyond.
