Overview

Colonialism and Its Legacy brings together essays by leading scholars in both the fields of political theory and the history of political thought about European colonialism and its legacies, and postcolonial social and political theory. The essays explore the ways in which European colonial projects structured and shaped much of modern political theory, how concepts from political philosophy affected and were realized in colonial and imperial practice, and how we can understand the intellectual and social world left behind by a half-millennium of European empires. The volume ranges from the beginning of modernity to the present day, examining colonialism and colonial legacies in India, Africa, Latin America, and North America.

Editorial Reviews

European History Quarterly
Dipesh Chakrabarty’s essay on subaltern history rounds up this excellent, both substantial and well edited, collection of essays which surely deserves graduate as well as advanced undergraduate readers.
