James R. Lehning is Professor of History at the University of Utah. His previous publications include To Be a Citizen: The Political Culture of the Early French Third Republic (2001) which won the Laurence Wylie Prize in French Cultural Studies in 2003 and, as co-editor, Europeans in the World: Sources on Cultural Contact (2 volumes, 2002).
'Maintaining both a comparative and transnational focus, [Lehning] offers a detailed consideration of the social, economic and cultural changes wrought on societies and communities by the varied impacts of colonial rule. The result is a refreshingly ambitious history that, among other things, will allow students to connect North and South American colonial encounters, ideas and arguments.' Martin Thomas, University of Exeter 'This eagerly anticipated book fills a gaping hole in the literature on European colonialism. It is an impressive synthesis of the diversity of colonial regimes and encounters across the globe, both on land and on the oceans. The author has incorporated an enormous amount of scholarship, including recent trends in imperial history and postcolonial studies ... masterfully weaving together political, economic, social, and cultural history with great breadth and nuance.' Jeffrey Auerbach, California State University, Northridge 'Recommended.' Choice 'Lehning's work is one of the few examples of a near-complete analysis of the complex parameters of European colonial conquest and rule that takes into account the growing complexities of the historiography, including the scope of gender, race, and concepts of freedom and citizenship in European colonial rule.' Jacob Ivey, H-War
