The League of Nations and the East Asian Imperial Order, 1920–1946

The League of Nations and the East Asian Imperial Order, 1920–1946 by Harumi Goto-Shibata
English | EPUB | 2020 | 297 Pages | ISBN : 9811549672 | 1 MB

Well-grounded on abundant Japanese language sources which have been underused, this book uncovers the League of Nations’ works in East Asia in the inter-war period. By researching the field of social and other technical issues, namely, the trade in narcotics, the trafficking of women and the work in terms of improving health provision and providing economic advice to Nationalist China, it not only examines their long-term impacts on the international relations in the region but also argues that the League’s works challenged the existing imperial order of East and Southeast Asia. The book offers a key read for academics and students of international history and international relations, and others studying Japan or East Asia in the twentieth century.

The Memory of Colonialism in Britain and France: The Sins of Silence

The Memory of Colonialism in Britain and France: The Sins of Silence by Itay Lotem
English | EPUB | 2022 | 432 Pages | ISBN : 3030637182 | 0.7 MB

This book explores national attitudes to remembering colonialism in Britain and France. By comparing these two former colonial powers, the author tells two distinct stories about coming to terms with the legacies of colonialism, the role of silence and the breaking thereof. Examining memory through the stories of people who incited public conversation on colonialism: activists; politicians; journalists; and professional historians, this book argues that these actors mobilised the colonial past to make sense of national identity, race and belonging in the present.
