  • The Ascent of John Companyby G.S. Cheema

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 55.00

    The Ascent of John Company is the story of the founding of the British empire in India. The process of founding empires is rarely, if ever, edifying.

Robert Clive and Warren Hastings, the two names that come most... more...

  • 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.

  • Postcolonial Nations, Islands, and Tourismby Helen Kapstein

    Rowman & Littlefield International 2017; US$ 38.99

This is the definitive account of the rise of the Zulu nation under the great ruler... more...
