When ideas travel: political theory, colonialism, and the history of ideas
in Colonial exchanges
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book presents acts of hybrid theorization from across the world, from figures within societies colonized by the British, French, and Spanish empires who sought an end to their colonial status or important modifications to it. It includes a diverse array of case studies as a step towards conceptualizing the character of the exchanges, including instances in which the colonized sought to reverse the direction in which ideas flowed. The book covers the well- known case of the Haitian Revolution. It begins in London, with a figure familiar to political theorists for his involvement in colonial projects: John Stuart Mill. The book treats an Indian writer who ultimately, seemingly paradoxically, endorsed British colonialism, which he saw could be an instrument for overcoming Brahmin domination at home.
