Synopsis

<P>The process of decolonization which started after World War I utterly reshaped the world and extended the focus of historians to a global perspective. Rather than presenting a coherent event, decolonization varied from country to country in its shape and duration, and has been evaluated differently over time. But is decolonization complete? What replaces former colonial controls after independence? Are Western historical frameworks adequate to describe decolonization?<br><br><i>Decolonization</i> brings together the most cutting edge thinking by major historians of decolonization, including previously unpublished essays, and writings by leaders of decolonizing countries, including Ho Chi-minh and Jawaharlal Nehru.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.</P>
