Synopsis

For courses in Imperialism/Colonialism as well as the second half of the World History survey course, this textbook addresses modern imperialism and colonialism from a truly global and holistic perspective. From the formation of centralized gunpowder empires in Eurasia and parts of Africa to the demise of the bi-polar Cold War world, Modern Imperialism and Colonialism investigates our evolving understanding of the origins, nature, mechanisms, and demise of modern empires. It evaluates empires as structures and also explores the doctrines, ideologies, and practices of imperialism and colonial rule.

He has co-authored several textbooks including Exchanges: A Global History and the forthcoming African Histories. Trained as an Africanist, he was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of the Western Cape and the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. He is currently working on both a graphic novel and a monograph of the life of Abina Mansah, a young enslaved woman who liberated herself in 19th century Ghana . Heather Streets-Salter is an associate professor of history at Washington State University, where she teaches world and imperial history at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
