This book was a great primer on imperialism and colonialism. It was a fairly easy read, yet powerful. As a college professor, even I get frustrated when big words are substituted for intelligent thought. This book gives it to you straight and allows you to make connections where applicable.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
