  • About the Edition

    The slow collapse of the European colonial empires after 1945 provides one of the great turning points of twentieth century history. With the loss of India however, the British under Harold Macmillan attempted to enforce a "second" colonial occupation--supporting the efforts of Sir Andrew Cohen of the Colonial Office to create a Central African Federation. Drawing on newly released archival material, The Politics and Economics of Decolonization offers a fresh examination of Britain"s central African territories in the late colonial period and provides a detailed assessment of how events in Britain, Africa and the UN shaped the process of decolonization. The author situates the Central African Federation--which consisted of modern day Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi--in its wider international context, shedding light on the Federation"s complex relationships with South Africa, with US Presidents Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy and with the expanding United Nations. The result is an important history of the last days of the British Empire and the beginnings of a more independent African continent.

    The end of colonial rule in Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean was one of the most important and dramatic developments of the twentieth century. In the decades after World War II, dozens of new states emerged as actors in global -established imperial regimes collapsed, some more or less peacefully, others amid mass violence. The extensive and compound nature of political uncertainty and socio-economic malaise being witnessed in most nations today, has recourse to the character of classes introduced in Africa by.

      This is an issue to which I sought to contribute in my book, Political Thought and the Public Sphere in Africa: Freedom, Democracy and Citizenship in the Era of Decolonization. One of the themes I explore in this book is when and how the word ‘democracy’ came to be politically powerful in s Tanzania.   a) The term ‘decolonization’ is likely to give the impression that the process of getting independence was a peaceful one. b) In some countries, the process was relatively peaceful as in some of the French colonies of Africa like Senegal, ivory coast in West Africa and in some British colonies such as Nigeria, Ghana, etc.. c) Some of the countries attained independence through the.

      Decolonization By Nasrullah Mambrol on October 4, • (1). Decolonization is the process of revealing and dismantling colonialist power in all its forms. This includes dismantling the hidden aspects of those institutional and cultural forces that had maintained the colonialist power and that remain even after political independence is achieved.   This bold, popularizing synthesis presents a readily accessible introduction to one of the major themes of twentieth-century world history. Between , when self-government was restored to Egypt, and , when nonracial democracy was achieved in South Africa, 54 new nations were established in s: 1.
