Echoes of Empire : Memory, Identity and Colonial Legacies Hardback

Edited by Kalypso Nicolaidis, Berny Sebe, Gabrielle Maas

Part of the International Library of Colonial History series


How does our colonial past echo through today's global politics?

How have former empire-builders sought vindication or atonement, and formerly colonized states reversal or retribution?

This groundbreaking book presents a panoramic view of attitudes to empires past and present, seen not only through the hard politics of international power structures but also through the nuances of memory, historiography and national and minority cultural identities.

Bringing together leading historians, poitical scientists and international relations scholars from across the globe, Echoes of Empire emphasizes Europe's colonial legacy whilst also highlighting the importance of non-European power centres- Ottoman, Russian, Chinese, Japanese- in shaping world politics, then and now.

Echoes of Empire bridges the divide between disciplines to trace the global routes travelled by objects, ideas and people and forms a radically different notion of the term 'empire' itself.

This will be an essential companion to courses on international relations and imperial history as well as a fascinating read for anyone interested in Wesern hegemony, North-South relations, global power shifts and the longue duree.
