The End of Empire and New States - INGS2602

In this unit, we critically examine the creation of new postcolonial states after World War II, following often violent anticolonial struggles. Postcolonial leaders in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and the Pacific, had high hopes for what the era of self-rule would bring. But the legacies of empire proved more resistant to a change in formal rule than those who struggled against oppression hoped.
