An economic history of West Africa by A. G Hopkins( Book )

63 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first work to offer a comprehensive account of the economic history of the huge area conventionally known as West Africa, including the former French territories as well as those colonised by the British. Ranging from prehistoric times to independence, the book presents an argument, based on the concept of the market, that criticises many conventional beliefs about econmic backwardness and advances an alternative set of explanations which takes into account, and contributes to, the latest studies in the fields of history, economics, anthropology and geography
British imperialism : crisis and deconstruction, 1914-1990 by P. J Cain( Book )

25 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the second half of a hugely ambitious and eagerly awaited attempt to provide a comprehensive new interpretation of the forces behind British imperial expansion. The first part, dealing with the early growth of the empire, is British Imperialism: Innovation and Expansion 1688-1914. Both volumes are independent and self-sufficient, but they come fully into their own when read as one. A milestone in the study of Britain, the British Empire and imperialism, they will also be necessary reading for students of comparative history, modern economic development and international relations." "In the first volume, the authors traced the role of 'Gentlemanly Capitalism'- the dynamic complex of economic, social and political influences centred on the City of London in fuelling the expansion of the British Empire before 1914. Here, they follow the fortunes of this matured system of political economy in the twentieth century, years dominated by two world wars, a world slump and decolonisation. They challenge the standard view of the period as one long retreat from empire, in which the accelerating process of decolonisation after 1945 was the inevitable outcome of economic decline between the wars." "Instead, they argue that the gentlemanly order proved remarkably resilient. Despite the immense problems of wartime debt and the collapse of international trade in the 1930s, Britain retained its economic dominance not only over the dependent empire in Africa and India, but also over the Dominions. Moreover, a number of attempts were made to reassert Britain's earlier financial and commercial authority in what had been almost a second, informal, empire in parts of South America and China."

British imperialism, 1688-2000 by P. J Cain( Book )

39 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The milestone in the understanding of British history and imperialism, this important book radically reinterprets the course of modern economic development and the causes of overseas expansion during the past three centuries. Employing their concept of gentlemanly capitalism, the authors draw imperial and domestic British history together to show how the shape of the nation and its economy depended on international and imperial ties, and how these ties were undone to produce the postcolonial world of today."

American empire : a global history by A. G Hopkins( Book )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new history of the United States that turns American exceptionalism on its head. American Empire is a panoramic work of scholarship that presents a bold new global perspective on the history of the United States. Drawing on his expertise in economic history and the imperial histories of Britain and Europe, A.G. Hopkins takes readers from the colonial era to today to show how, far from diverging, the United States and Western Europe followed similar trajectories throughout this long period, and how America's dependency on Britain and Europe extended much later into the nineteenth century than previously understood. In a sweeping narrative spanning three centuries, Hopkins describes how the revolt of the mainland colonies was the product of a crisis that afflicted the imperial states of Europe generally, and how the history of the American republic between 1783 and 1865 was a response not to the termination of British influence but to its continued expansion. He traces how the creation of a U.S. industrial nation-state after the Civil War paralleled developments in Western Europe, fostered similar destabilizing influences, and found an outlet in imperialism through the acquisition of an insular empire in the Caribbean and Pacific. The period of colonial rule that followed reflected the history of the European empires in its ideological justifications, economic relations, and administrative principles. After 1945, a profound shift in the character of globalization brought the age of the great territorial empires to an end

Africa, empire and globalization : essays in honor of A.G. Hopkins( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Africa, empire and globalization is a set of original essays in honor of the distinguished historian, Professor A. G. Hopkins, whose career of over fifty years covers three main areas that are global in reach, but connect to ideas that are generated in such major cities as Lagos and London. The volume celebrates the key principles that have emerged from the cumulative body of Hopkins's work: searching for originality; extending the frontier of knowledge through new data and interpretations; questioning received assumptions and wisdom; promoting conversations between multiple, often divergent, sets of ideas from different disciplines; presenting ideas such that those within and outside of the academy can benefit; and applying theories drawn from various disciplines to organize the evidence and to present it in digestible form. The first section covers Africa, with essays on the economic history of Lagos and West Africa, the connections between economic change and imperialism, and the role of Africa in the world economy, including the trans-Saharan, trans-Atlantic, and the Indian Ocean World. The role of Africans in creating wealth and responding to new economic opportunities receives prominent attention in some chapters. In the second section, new topics on imperialism are explored, such as the British expansion to India, the role of trade in the Gambia, and the overall impact of the empire. Hopkins' idea of "gentlemanly capitalism" generates considerable debate in various chapters, and is also applied to various contexts and places. The current issues around the theme of globalization are developed in the third section in terms of the relevance of the concept, the contributions that historians can make to the subject, the arguments for and against, and its impact on capitalism and democracy. From peace to war, from economic prosperity to economic decline, from the use of power to nationalist resurgence, the section looks at the dominant concerns of our time."--Publisher description
