Politics have always been involved in questions of historical scale. Sometimes the politics are more obvious—at 
no time more so than a century ago, when scientific internationalism encouraged an emphasis on global 
intellectual communities and the universal foundations and reach of scientific ideas. In this paper I will 
survey the relatively long history of global and international-scale history. In an era when even Europe seems
radical as a spatial point of interrogation (whether because you think it should be provincialized, or 
just politically cauterized), questions of scale have returned as an urgent matter.
