Echoes of Empire

Memory, Identity and Colonial Legacies


How does our colonial past echo through today’s global politics? How have former empire-builders sought vindication or atonement, and formerly colonised states reversal or retribution? This ground-breaking book presents a panoramic view of attitudes to empires past and present, seen not only through the hard politics of international power structures but also through the nuances of memory, historiography and national and minority cultural identities. Bringing together the leading historians, political scientists and international relations scholars from across the globe, Echoes of Empireemphasizes the importance of non-European power centres – Ottoman, Russian, Chinese, Japanese – in shaping world politics, then and now. Echoes of Empire bridges the divide between disciplines to trace the global routes travelled by objects, ideas and people, and forms a radically different notion of the term ‘empire’ itself. This will be an essential companion to courses on imperial and world history and politics.
