Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Beyond Empire and Nation: The decolonization of African and Asian societies, 1930s-1960s contains the table of contents. Decolonization has become one of the major themes in twentieth-century historiography. Within the span of three decades, most of the countries that had been colonized by European powers became independent. Discussions tend to concentrate on the causes of decolonization, particularly on the motives and policies of the European powers. The book aims to enhance the debate by moving the analysis away from the political interpretations of decolonization that have been used by both the departing powers and the new national leaders, interpretations that have subsequently dominated our retrospective view of the period.

Keywords: African societies; Asian societies; decolonization; European powers
