Description

Decolonization brings together the most cutting-edge thinking by major historians of decolonization, including previously unpublished essays and writings by leaders of decolonizing countries including Ho Chi-Minh and Jawaharlal Nehru.

The chapters in this volume present a move away from Western analysis of decolonizaton and instead move towards the angle of vision of the former colonies. This is a ground-breaking study of a subject central to recent global history.
