Book Description

2 Nov 2009 0415424585 978-0415424585 1

In recent years, imperial history has experienced a newfound vigour, dynamism and diversity. There has been an explosion of new work in the field, which has been driven into even greater prominence by contemporary world events. However, this resurgence has brought with it disputes between those who are labelled as exponents of a ‘new imperial history’ and those who can, by default, be termed old imperial historians.

This collection not only gathers together some of the most important, influential and controversial work which has come to be labelled ‘new imperial history’, but also presents key examples of innovative recent writing across the broader fields of imperial and colonial studies. 

This book is the perfect companion for any student interested in empires and global history.

This is a very accessible volume of essays that explore the recent developments in this area of historiography. Highly recommended for those approaching this area of study for the first time.
