CORE BOOKS – Best Books on Imperialism
Cambridge University 2011
Examines German history from 1871 to 1945 as an expression of the aspiration to imperialist expansion and the simultaneous fear of destruction by rivals. Baranowski reveals a common thread: the drama of German imperialist ambitions that embraced ethnic homogeneity over diversity, imperial enlargement over stasis, and “living space” as the route to the biological survival of the German Volk.
Campbell, James T. et al, eds.
University of North Carolina 2007
This lively collection of essays offers a pointed reminder that visions of national and imperial greatness were a cornerstone of the new country when it was founded. In fact, notions of empire have long framed debates over western expansion, Indian removal, African slavery, Asian immigration, and global economic dominance, and they persist today despite the proliferation of anti-imperialist rhetoric.

Textbook. Porter sees imperialism as a symptom not of Britain’s strength in the world, but of her decline; and he argues that the empire itself both aggravated and obscured deep-seated malaise in the British economy.
OUP Oxford 2016
Written by specialists from various fields, this edited volume is the first systematic investigation of the impact of imperialism on twentieth-century Britain. The contributors explore different aspects of Britain’s imperial experience as the empire weathered the storms of the two world wars, was subsequently dismantled, and then apparently was gone. The volume also addresses the fascinating yet complex question of how, after the formal end of empire, the colonial past has continued to impinge upon our post-colonial present.
Wesseling, H. L.
Taylor & Francis 2015
The nineteenth century was Europe’s colonial century. At the beginning of the period, the only colonial empire that existed was the British Empire. By the end of the century the situation was completely different and Europe’s colonial possessions had come to constitute a large part of the world. This is the first book to describe the whole process of colonization from conquest to pacification, and to analyze it in the light of administrative, cultural and economic developments.
