  • Colonial exchangesby Burke A. Hendrix; Deborah Baumgold

    Manchester University Press 2017; US$ 36.50

    When European powers colonised the globe, they spread not only political power but also ideas. Yet those within colonised societies did not receive those ideas passively. They instead sought to transform or repurpose them, often in surprising or ambiguous ways. This volume illustrates a variety of examples worthy of further study. more...

  • The Colonial Legacy in Franceby Nicolas Bancel; Pascal Blanchard; Dominic Thomas; Alexis Pernsteiner

    Indiana University Press 2017; US$ 59.99

    Debates about the legacy of colonialism in France are not new, but they have taken on new urgency in the wake of recent terrorist attacks. Responding to acts of religious and racial violence in 2005, 2010, and 2015 and beyond, the essays in this volume pit French ideals against government-sponsored revisionist decrees that have exacerbated tensions,... more...
