In 13 richly illustrated chapters on the Ottoman and European empires, this volume gives succinct and accessible overviews of imperialism as it was experienced in each 'home' country, focusing on the modes and ideology of colonial expansion and its repercussions. As well as major imperial powers, such as Spain, Britain and the Netherlands, the authors examine the less familiar colonial ambitions of Belgium, Austria-Hungary, Italy and Russia, and a final essay looks at 'the American way of empire'.
