Gregory Blue, Martin P. Bunton, Ralph C. Croizier
M.E. Sharpe, Jan 1, 2002 - History - 359 pages
This innovative work places non-European histories into the larger narrative of world history by focusing on colonialism and its legacy around the world. Selected with special emphasis on being comparative, these essays range from the British Empire (India, Egypt, Palestine, and Australia), and French colonialism (Brittany and Algeria), to South Africa, German East Africa, Indonesia, Fiji, and Japanese imperialism. They are organized topically around themes such as resituating colonial histories; land, law, and politics; gender; regimes of colonial knowledge; and architecture and urbanization.
