Author: Philip Anthony

Rating: 5

Review: This is a refreshing little book which pulls no punches in explaining how and why 'third wave' decolonisation (the ending of the great European Empires post-WWII) was more often than not violent chaotic and hardly a cause for unmitigated celebration. It convincingly sets that particular period of decolonisation in the context of other 'waves' of decolonisation both before WWII and post 1989. Highly recommended for students of the subject who want to understand the causes and consequences of decolonisation without being preached to about the evils of colonialism itself.

Review: The font size is too small. In other books, not even footnotes or endnotes are as small as is the main text here. It' really awful and incredibly hard to read.

    Price: £26.99

    Brand: Bloomsbury Publishing PLC

     

    Description: The history of the British Empire, a subject that had slipped into obscurity when the empire came to an end, has since made a stunning comeback, generating a series of heated debates about the causes, character, and consequences of empire. In this volume Dane Kennedy offers a wide-ranging assessment of the main schools of thought that have transformed the way we view the British Empire and the world it helped to create. Navigating a clear course through these intellectual waters requires an awareness of their shifting currents and a commitment to tracking their changing character over time. Dane Kennedy has contributed to the imperial history wars for more than thirty years, and in this volume he brings his most important writings, along with brand new material, together for the first time to provide a sweeping overview of the subject and the debates that have shaped it. The Imperial History Wars is essential reading for any student or scholar of the British Empire.
