Promotional Information

'...brief but effective overview.' - Robert L. Tignor, International Journal of African Historical Studies 'Although this text is particularly appropriate for imperialism and colonialism will appeal to a general readership as well because of its clarity, practical information, and timeliness.' - African Studies Review 'Decolonization since 1945 is a valuable new teaching tool that will enable students to gain an accurate and thoughtful overview of a complex subject. The volume also contains a number of tools that will be appreciated by the student and academic reader alike, including a chronology of European decolonization, a list of abbreviations that acts as a handy reference guide to the bewildering variety of acronyms encountered during the study of anti-colonial nationalist movements, a number of useful maps and an up-to-date select bibliography. It provides a readable and lively account peppered with quotations that nicely illuminates key points. Perhaps most importantly, it weighs in at a size that will not put students off.' - Simon J. Potter, National University of Ireland, Galway, The Round Table
