Decolonization: Perspectives from Now and Then


Decolonization is a collection of revisionist writings on the phenomenon. It brings together the most cutting edge thinking by major historians of decolonization, including previously unpublished essays, and writings by leaders of decolonizing countries, including Ho Chi-minh and Jawaharlal Nehru. The chapters in this volume present a move away from Western analysis of decolonization, towards the angle of vision of the former colonies.This is a groundbreaking study of a subject central to recent global history that answers important questions such as:* Is decolonization complete?* What replaces former colonial controls after independence?* Are Western historical frameworks adequate to describe decolonization?This is a book that really should be on the bookshelf of any historian or student of decolonization.
