Editorial Reviews

“The editors and academic contributors have performed a yeoman service by presenting the history and impact of colonialism on Korea and India. This rich volume based on scientific study of historiography of diverse colonized societies and colonizers has proved on the basis of rich evidence that the colonizers, by following ruthless policies of exploitation, completely underdeveloped, de-industrialized and robbed riches of every colony leaving a burden of backwardness on the shoulders of decolonized people and leaders. This volume is a challenge to the apologist who claims the modernizing role of the exploiters because historical evidence provided in this volume clearly proves that colonies were bled by the colonizers, economically and in other ways. It is a must for every serious student of history, especially new generations of decolonized societies to understand colonial impact and even today’s imperialism.” —C.P. Bhambhri, Distinguished Professor, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi
