Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of names, terms and concepts that occur in the book Beyond Empire and Nation: The decolonization of African and Asian societies, 1930s-1960s. Decolonization has become one of the major themes in twentieth-century historiography. 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. It begins with an exploration of decolonization away from conventional parameters. The authors suggest an alternative approach, beyond political narratives and western temporalities, and across the fissures in history that are so often taken for granted.

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