More > political process of the transfer of power from an alien European regime to an indigenous governing body of one sort or another. Others see “decolonization” through the lens of perception, focusing on how media outlets of the mid-twentieth century covered the significant changes that were taking place in the geopolitical landscape at the time. Still others examine “decolonization” in terms of a paradigm shift in terms of political, cultural, or intellectual conceptualizations.

As a whole, these essays point to the ways that the ends of empire in Africa and Asia created a space for new possibilities, even as continuities with the past remained salient.< Less
