Unlike the numerous inclusionist universal historiographers of the 17th and 18th centuries who sought to capture humanity as a whole, historiographers of the 19th and early 20th centuries increasingly excluded larger parts of Africa, Asia, the South Pacific and the Americas from their field of vision and pretended that these were inhabited by apparently"people without a history". Simultaneously with the globalization of politics and economy, the historiographical view of national history in Europe and North America narrowed in an opposite process, which even the few universal historiographers could not escape. Kleinschmidt places the change from inclusionism to exclusionism in the context of colonial ideologies and shows that exclusionist historiography served to legitimize these ideologies.
