Description

This is an essential companion to the process of decolonization - perhaps one of the most important historical processes of the twentieth century. Examining decolonization in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and the Pacific, the Companion includes:

  • thematic chapters
  • a detailed chronology and thorough glossary
  • biographies of key figures
  • maps.

Providing comprehensive coverage of a broad and complex subject area, the guide explores:

  • the global context for decolonization
  • nationalism and the rise of resistance movements
  • resistance by white settlers and moves towards independence
  • Hong Kong and Macau, and decolonization in the late twentieth century
  • debates surrounding neo-colonialism, and the rise of 'development' projects and aid
  • the legacy of colonialism in law, education, administration and the military.

With suggestions for further reading, and a guide to sources, this is an invaluable resource for students and scholars of the colonial and post-colonial eras, and is an indispensable guide to the reshaping of the world in the twentieth century.
