Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
There is enough quality in this volume to recommend this book to scholars and students interested in development theory and colonization and how both processes might be theorized as mutually constitutive. I have little doubt that the editors and contributors have set down a compelling research agenda that will be carried forward in future publications. ECONOMIC HISTORY REVIEW A thought-provoking collection. (...) This is a valuable set of essays addressing contemporary issues with an eye on the past and revealing some insights into the antecedents of contemporary development rhetoric and techniques. POLITICAL STUDIES REVIEW This volume adds to a recent debate that revisits the concepts and notions of development rooted in the 'civilising mission' during the colonial era. Hence it explores a hitherto largely ignored, or at least neglected link concerning the continuity of the 'colonial mind' in international relations of today. NEW ROUTES
