Elites and Decolonization in the Twentie

Elites and Decolonization in the Twentie Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Decolonization changed the spatial order of the globe, the imagination of men and women around the world and established images of the globe. Both individuals and social groups shaped decolonization itself: this volume puts agency squarely at the center of debate by looking at elites and leaders who changed the course of history across the world.

Book News Annotation:

The duration of the process was short--about a decade in south and southeast Asia, shorter in most of Africa--but the implications grand. Decolonization in the 20th century has been studied from many angles, and new approaches are proliferating. This collection of 13 contributions is based on a 2008 conference held at the U. of Cologne, Germany, which is where editor Jost Dlffer is professor of international history and of peace and conflict studies; editor Marc Frey (Jacobs University Bremen) also specializes in international history and the history of colonialism. The studies presented here, focused on elites, include discussion of Dutch elites and decolonization, emerging business elites in newly independent Indonesia, French schools in Lebanon, apartheid and political elites in South Africa, chiefs in northern Namibia, and elites in Guinea, Tanzania, and Khrushchev's Soviet Union.
