Praise / Awards

  • (Post-)colonial Archipelagos is no ordinary edited volume. It retells centuries of imperial and post-imperial history by drawing together research by a wide variety of specialists into a synthetic account with empirical rigor. The novel method pays off handsomely. This will be a much-cited work.”

    —Sam Erman, USC Gould School of Law
