Defining World History vs. Global History

I agree with Larry Grant. I suppose "world" versus "global" is an issue that means a lot to some, though it seems to me that a great many versions of what it does mean persist here with no agreed upon set of connotations at all yet. In any case, I fail to see how any of this word play is "dangerous" - or even all that vital in any way. I believe a great deal more caution ought to be exercised about applying the word "dangerous" to any purely academic endeavor, given the very real dangers that do exist in the world (or "globe," depending on what you prefer).
