He was, in fact, a member of the boundary commission responsible for drawing the boundary between India and Pakistan during the British decolonization of South Asia. The

Western colonialism which suppressed the contribution of the Arabs; through a consideration of Frantz Fanon, Abdelkabir Khatibi, Abdallah Laroui and Edward Said, I will argue that a genuine decolonization must be sought at the level of European thought. Tradition, translation and colonization 199 The appropriative economy of Orientalism as a corporate institution of colonialism Translation was a vehicle which carried cultural artefacts from Greek and other traditions into Arabic. It was part of a complex infrastructure which helped develop the economy of the

Toward a global history of white nationalism
Daniel Geary, Camilla Schofield, and Jennifer Sutton

politics of reaction to the promise of racial equality and decolonization. The term “white nationalism” was first coined in 1970 by white supremacists who sought to create a false equivalency with black nationalism. Though the numbers of self-identified “white nationalists” remain small, their ideas continue to resonate broadly, impacting contemporary debates about global demographic change, national identity, and mass migration. 2 We treat “race” in this volume as an unstable social construct, originating in the colonial history of the dispossession, extermination

Reveries of reverse colonization

over the past half century or more. The spectre of a “home” defiled by peoples once kept in their colonial place was remarkably reminiscent of the global upheavals of the 1960s, with the Powellite moment in England, the rebellion of Rhodesian whites against the principle of majority rule, and the wider dislocations of an unravelling empire among the scattered remnants of “Greater Britain”. It was equally consistent with the very earliest invocations of “decolonization” – a term originally coined in Germany in the 1920s to describe the sudden loss of the German

involved competing interests and a variety of stakeholders, including the enslaved, rather than being a battle of wills between “saints and sinners,” stands as a critical touchstone in understanding both the evolving scholarship and commemorative practices related to British anti-slavery activism in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Upending the dominant historiography of British abolitionism in an age of decolonization, Williams’s magnum opus stands as one of the first scholarly appraisals to challenge self-congratulatory Victorian narratives of

The rhetorical consequences of a colonial massacre
Richard Toye

’s Coast Province, was one of the most notorious scandals in British colonial history. The outrage it generated at home – in some right-wing quarters, as well as on the left – has been credited directly with hastening the decolonization process. Historians have portrayed the massacre not merely as ‘the decisive event in Kenya’s path to independence’, 1 but also as a moment ‘which signalled the

The aftershocks of decolonization and Black Power
Bill Schwarz

Wretched of the Earth , unpersuasive from our own historical perspective, nonetheless represents a luminous voice of its time. 7 Generations of men, women, and children devoted their lives to emancipation; for an interlude they created a time when it was feasible to imagine that the liquidation of the old empires would generate benevolent historical outcomes, and in which the logic of race would fracture. In order to understand the scale of decolonization we need also add the US to the frame. 8 The anti-colonial movements which broke the European overseas empires

The historical context of partition

With conflict between Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs reaching unprecedented levels in the mid-1940s, British leaders felt compelled to move towards decolonization. Adding to the pressure driving this decision were international considerations and domestic pressures in Britain itself. When Mountbatten arrived in March 1947 as India’s last viceroy, he emphasized the need for haste

approaches to democratization in Africa were largely subsumed under the closely interrelated perspectives of modernization and nationalism. The study of democratization arrived in the 1950s and 1960s as an accompaniment of decolonization, and in its most systematic and coherent form drew heavily on American political science. The study 138 AREAS of politics in Africa was discouraged during the colonial era. African peoples were regarded as backward, if not barbaric, and hence unsuited to the pursuit of ‘politics’ – conceived in terms of a civilized liberal ideal

-determination had hardened enough, the political environment was ripe for decolonization and large-scale small state creation. This highly accommodating environment remains in place today, and as a result new small states emerged during the post-Cold War and post-9/11 periods. 140 Small states in world politics Systems of collective security in twentieth-century world politics: from Wilsonianism to a “New World Order”2 and beyond Wilsonian Internationalism and the interwar years, 1919–39 As the First World War raged on, the US president Woodrow Wilson readied himself to
