The Shadows of Empire: How Imperial History Shapes Our World

English | February 2nd, 2021 | ISBN: 1643136682 | 384 Pages | True EPUB | 6.56 MB

A masterful, thought-provoking, and wide-ranging study of how the vestiges of the imperial era shape society today.

In this groundbreaking narrative, The Shadows of Empire explains(in the vein of The Silk Roads and Prisoners of Geography) how the world's imperial legacies still shapes our lives as well as the thorniest issues we face today.

For the first time in millennia we live without formal empires. But that doesn't mean we don't feel their presence rumbling through history. From Russia's incursions in the Ukraine to Brexit; from Trump's America-First policy to China's forays into Africa; from Modi's India to the hotbed of the Middle East, Samir Puri provides a bold new framework for understanding the world's complex rivalries and politics.

Organized by region, and covering vital topics such as security, foreign policy, national politics and commerce, The Shadows of Empire combines gripping history and astute analysis to explain why the history of empire affects us all in profound ways; it is also a plea for greater awareness, both as individuals and as nations, of how our varied imperial pasts have contributed to why we see the world in such different ways.
