About this Item
- The Empires Who Came in from the Cold: Decolonization and the Cold War
- The overlapping timelines of post-World-War-II decolonization and the Cold War create a fascinating interrelationship, according to historian Jason Parker. According to Parker, decolonization entailed not just the transfer of political and juridical sovereignty but also an intellectual and cultural process that dethroned European assertions and affirmed nationalist self-rule. The ultimate dimensions of the decolonization process make it a larger and longer-running 20th-century story than that of the superpower conflict of the Cold War.
