The Colonial and Postcolonial Experience Series


As European nations began exploring the wider world in the early modern era, their envoys established colonies throughout the world. Over the centuries, more and more Europeans migrated to these colonies, subjugating the local populations, taking control of the natural resources, and fighting other European nations for continued control of these areas. The people and cultures of these regions were impacted by their colonial status for centuries, even after they won their independence. This series will examine the historical and impact of colonization on societies and nations around the world.
