Contents Unlike earlier studies, which have largely dealt with the possessions of a single power, Fieldhouses book surveys the entire field of overseas colonization. From the heyday of the mercantile empires of the eighteenth century to the process of decolonization intitiated after World War II. The comparitive method adopted by Mr. Fieldhouse enables him to bring out the strengths and weaknesses in each colonial system. At the same time he is able to answer many of the central questions -- why colonies were aquired, how they were governed, what advatages they provided for their owners, and why they eventually disappered.
