Erratum

In Issue of Volume 1 (July 2002) in the article ‘Uncovering the Laws of Global History’ by Graeme Snooks on p. 47, line 19 the sentence: ‘Had it been conquest, commerce, as it was throughout the premodern period...’ should read: ‘Had it been conquest, commerce, conquest as it was throughout the premodern pe­riod...’

We apologize to Prof. Snooks and the readers for this error.
