The middle decades of the twentieth century witnessed the great dramas of the ending of Western imperial rule in Africa and Asia.

Thieves' kitchen : the Regency underworld by D. A Low( Book )

10 editions published between 1982 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Klappentext: Alongside the cultural brilliance and high achievement of the Regency period, the world of Pride and Prejudice and the Nature poets, of Constable and Nash, there existed also a pulsating urban underworld where crime and vice of every kind flourished. A varied throng of pleasure-seekers and criminals - among them gamblers, pickpockets, brothel-keepers and body snatchers - crowded the streets of London. All indulged themselves with little restraint until the coming of the Metropolitan Police Act in 1829 curbed their more obvious activities. Thieves' Kitchen takes us into this often forgotten world, and draws on a wide range of contemporary sources, including unpublished notebooks, to provide a vivid picture of criminals at work. It was a world of sometimes startling contrasts in which aristocracy, even royalty, rubbed shoulders with all manner of crooks, vice-pedlars and "unfortunates." The exclusive clubs of St. James's where vast fortunes changed hands overnight, and the flash houses and rookeries in the ill-lit streets and alleyways of Whitechapel and St. Giles's where crimes were plotted and concealed; the high-spirited adventures of Tom and Jerry, and the macabre exploits of the resurrection-men; women of pleasure and grand-scale embezzlers - all are part of Donald A. Low's colorful portrait of high life and low, of the criminal and the racy, which was the Regency underworld
Fabrication of empire : the British and the Uganda kingdoms, 1890-1902 by D. A Low( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the 1890s, the 'scramble for Africa' created the new country of Uganda. This inland territory carved out by British agents first encompassed some twenty to thirty African kingdoms. In his magisterial new study, Anthony Low examines how and why the British were able to dominate these rulerships and establish a colonial government. At the same time, the book goes beyond providing a simple narrative account of events; rather, Low seeks to analyse the conditions under which such a transformation was possible. By skilfully negotiating the many complex political and social undercurrents of this period, Low presents a groundbreaking theoretical model of colonial conquest and rule. The result is a major contribution to debates about the making of empire that will appeal to Africanists and imperial historians alike."--pub. desc

The egalitarian moment : Asia and Africa, 1950-1980 by D. A Low( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General histories of the twentieth century will have much to say about the establishment, spread, maintenance and sudden collapse of Soviet Communism. This book outlines a major feature of twentieth-century world history that arguably affected more people than the rise and fall of Soviet Communism. It was the first to discuss as related developments the many attempts in Asia and Africa in the third quarter of the twentieth century to create egalitarian rural societies (landlord abolition in Egypt, India and Iran; ujamaa in Tanzania; land reform in Indonesia; collectivization in China, Vietnam and Ethiopia), their failure, and the differentiated rural regimes which, despite landlord abolition, remain there to this day. The case studies include Egypt, India, the three East African countries, Papua New Guinea, Iran, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Ethiopia, China and Vietnam. The book highlights a major and hitherto disaggregated aspect of twentieth-century world history
Britain and Indian Nationalism, 1929-1942 : imprint of ambiguity by D. A Low( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

India's struggle for independence was arguably the most momentous of the twentieth century, and central to it was the generation of powerful nationalist forces. In a series of detailed studies Anthony Low shows how the ambiguity of the British position conditioned the distinctive character of this struggle: how the British determination to hold fast their Indian empire (unlike the Americans in the Philippines) prior to 1942 was nonetheless complemented by a reluctance to resist their nationalist opponents in the unyielding ways of the French in Vietnam and the Dutch in Indochina. Much that Gandhi did, Professor Low concludes, would have been unnecessary in the Philippines and impossible in Indonesia and Vietnam, but astutely fitted the peculiar conditions of the nationalist struggle against the British in India. Published on the fiftieth anniversary of Indian independence, Britain and Indian Nationalism makes a major contribution to the historiography of modern India, to Britain's relations with its empire, and to the history of decolonisation in the twentieth century.--Publisher description
