A Primary Source AnalysisBook - 2005
Colonies living under foreign rule share two indignities: colonizers establish power over less powerful people, and they take more than they return to their colonies. This fascinating book looks at the history of colonialism from earliest civilization through the twentieth century--from the Huns in Mongolia to the Greeks in the Mediterranean Sea, to the British in Colonial America--discussing why it developed, the quintessential colonial powers, and how the colonies broke from their mother countries. Primary source images and transcripts of primary source documents help readers understand why this political system developed and why it fell.
