Concise but sweeping, it encompasses the processes of colonization and decolonization from the early modern period to the twentieth century. Osterhammel shows that the colonial situation developed in ways that duplicated neither the metropolis nor the pre-colonial society, but instead blended these and added a new direction characteristic only of colonial realms. Osterhammel emphasizes that the Europeans were normally not considered dangerous invaders by local population until they threatened the traditional cultures with missionaries, European schools, and bureaucracy.
In fact, the authors write, the phenomenon can be traced back to early modern large-scale trading, for example, the silk trade between China and the Mediterranean region, the shipping routes between the Arabian Peninsula and India, and the more frequently traveled caravan routes of the Near East and North Africa - all conduits for people, goods, coins, artwork, and ideas. Max Weber and his contemporaries by Wolfgang J Mommsen Book 27 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Max Weber and His Contemporaries provides an unrivalled tour d'horizon of European intellectual life in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and an assessment of the pivotal position within it occupied by Max Weber.

Decolonization : a short history by Jan C Jansen Book 11 editions published between and in English and Italian and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide 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 politics.
Long-established imperial regimes collapsed, some more or less peacefully, others amid mass violence. This book takes an incisive look at decolonization and its long-term consequences, revealing it to be a coherent yet multidimensional process at the heart of modern history.
Providing a comparative perspective on the decolonization process, they shed light on its key aspects while taking into account the unique regional and imperial contexts in which it unfolded. Jansen and Osterhammel show how the seeds of decolonization were sown during the interwar period and argue that the geopolitical restructuring of the world was intrinsically connected to a sea change in the global normative order.
They examine the economic repercussions of decolonization and its impact on international power structures, its consequences for envisioning world order, and the long shadow it continues to cast over new states and former colonial powers alike. Concise and authoritative, Decolonization is the essential introduction to this momentous chapter in history, the aftershocks of which are still being felt today.
Imperialism and after : continuities and discontinuities by German Historical Institute in London Book 13 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide. Here is the acclaimed book that challenges the notion that Europe's formative engagement with the non-European world was invariably marred by an imperial gaze and presumptions of Western superiority.
Osterhammel shows how major figures such as Leibniz, Voltaire, Gibbon, and Hegel took a keen interest in Asian culture and history, and introduces lesser-known scientific travelers, colonial administrators, Jesuit missionaries, and adventurers who returned home from Asia bearing manuscripts in many exotic languages, huge collections of ethnographic data, and stories that sometimes defied belief. Osterhammel brings the sights and sounds of this tumultuous age vividly to life, from the salons of Paris and the lecture halls of Edinburgh to the deserts of Arabia, the steppes of Siberia, and the sumptuous courts of Asian princes.
Die Entzauberung Asiens : Europa und die asiatischen Reiche im Im Jahrhundert wurden auch entlegene Teile Asiens bereist und erschlossen.
Asien wurde damals zugleich entzaubert und besser verstanden als in den Jahrhunderten davor. Weltoffenheit und wissenschaftliche Neugier kippten um in eine neue, heute noch nachwirkende Arroganz um. Zur kolonialen Unterwerfung eines entzauberten Kontinents war es dann nur ein kleiner Schritt. Jahrhundert so sehr wie das Ende kolonialer Herrschaft in Asien und Afrika. An emerging modern world, by Sebastian Conrad Book 5 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide The long century between and was a transformative period in global history.
During this time, a world of connected, but essentially still separated large regions, gave way to a globally integrated world.
