His prize-winning The Wilsonian Moment: Self-Determination and the International Origins of Anticolonial Nationalism (2007), co-edited volumes The Shock of the Global: The 1970s in Perspective (2010), and more recently, Empires at War, 1911-23 (2014), The Development Century: A Global History (2018), and the essay "International Society as a Historical Subject" (2020) have enriched and expanded the thought-world of international history in the global age as a scholarly craft and a subject of historical inquiry. Amongst his contributions to the field are his conceptual, methodological, and historiographical reflections on the history of the "United States in the world", and the "Method and Practice of International History" (国际史的方法与实践).

Manela has intervened in a wide range of historical topics, from the politics of smallpox eradication in global development to the experience of Asia in the "Global 1919"; from US-Egyptian relations in the interward period to the global significance of the Cairo Declaration; from Wilson, Lenin, and Roosevelt to the rise and aftermath of transnational anti-imperialist movements in the 20th century, amongst many others.

He has held fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, and the American Council of Learned Societies, among others, and was a Burkhardt Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.
