While the last apparent vestiges of colonial rule are fast becoming historical artifacts, few people in the former colonizing countries have more than an impressionistic understanding of what colonialism was. This course is designed to disabuse the intelligent layperson of erroneous ideas about the nature of colonial rule and the legacy it bequeathed to the contemporary world. We will examine the origins of colonial policy, as well as its conjuncture with other economic and political problems, through a series of case studies and intellectual histories.
