Description:

This masterful synthesis examines the history of European colonialism from 1700 through the process of decolonization after 1945 - for the first time bridging early modern Atlantic empires and the later Asian and African empires of 'high imperialism'. Spanning the empires of Spain, Portugal, Great Britain, France and the Netherlands, this book provides a different perspective on modern European history, examining the interrelationship between the imperial nations and their imperial possessions. Viewing colonialism as a phenomenon of contact between Europe and the rest of the world, this 'entangled histories' approach considers the surprising ways that imperial powers displayed their histories and identities as much in colonial settings as in imperial capitals. It reveals the common themes of colonial government, economic development and cultural contact across the different empires as well as the ways in which these themes played out, contrasting the differing development, structure and impact of each empire.
