Colonialism: An International, Social, Cultural, and Political Encyclopedia, Volume 1
"The history of the last 500 years is the history of imperialism," writes editor Melvin Page. In the Americas, as a result of imperialist conquest, disease, famine, and war nearly wiped out a population estimated in the tens of millions. Africa was devastated by the slave trade, an integral part of imperialism from the 1400s to the 1800s. In Asia, even though native populations survived, native political institutions were destroyed. Imperialism also forged the two most important ideologies of the last five centuries--racialism and modern nationalism.
In more than 600 essays presented in this three-volume encyclopedia, Page and other leading scholars--historians, political scientists, economists, and sociologists--analyze the origins of imperialism, the many forms it took, and its impact worldwide. They also explore imperialisM's bitter legacy: the gross inequities of global wealth and power that divide the former conquerors--primarily Europe, the United States, and Japan--from the people they conquered.

Colonialism: An International Social Cultural and Political EncyclopediaGebruikersrecensie - Book Verdict
This thematic reference, with an extensive chronology, examines the events, people, places, and ideas that have shaped the world we live in via colonialism. The first two volumes contain alphabetical entries on topics pertaining to colonialism; the third is a collection of primary documents such as the Balfour Declaration and the Sykes-Picot Agreement. Page (history, East Tennessee State Univ.) has enlisted the expertise of international scholars to provide concise articles on such topics as mercantilism, the British Empire, and colonial administration. He has also included biographical sketches of the far-ranging group of personalities who shaped colonialism. Some of the articles are disappointing, however, e.g., the biographical synopsis of Winston Churchill does not mention his herculean efforts to sustain the crumbling British Empire. Also, Page should have included his excellent analysis of colonialism in the main body of this work rather than in a preface that no student will read. Nevertheless, this is an original and timely resource that encompasses the many dimensions of historical phenomenon that still reverberates into the 21st century. Recommended for undergraduate history collections.-Jim Doyle, Sara Hightower Regional Lib., Rome, GA ...
