The dissolution of European empires and the formation of independent states in Africa and Asia was one of the most important historical processes of the twentieth century. Decolonization changed the established images and̐Μưspatial order of the globe, as well as̐Μưthe imagination of men and women around the world. This volume puts agency squarely at the center of debate by looking̐Μưat elites, leaders and social groups who shaped decolonization processes and changed the course of history. The volume ultimately shows how elites were vital in mediating and driving the complex processes which ultimately led to decolonization
"Decolonization changed the spatial order of the globe, the imagination of men and women around the world and established images of the globe. Both individuals and social groups shaped decolonization itself; this volume puts agency squarely at the center of debate by looking at elites and leaders who changed the course of history across the world."-- Provided by publisher
