Colonial wars have been a very active part of 19th and 20th century history and their importance has often been overlooked to the extent that they deserve. Their study and analysis, in order to understand the contemporary world and current international relations, is as necessary as it is interesting, and that is the main objective of this book: to consider a broad chronological and geographical arc that allows us to introduce us to the characteristics of colonial conflicts.


This book aims to approach the phenomenon of colonial wars with the intention of understanding our most immediate past in order to analyse the contemporary and current scenario with new tools. It is a book that will contribute to the dissemination of contents without neglecting the considerations of the social sciences and history, with a compilation and at the same time analytical character.

Target Audience

This book is aimed at all those who are passionate about the history of colonial wars, the processes of decolonisation and neo-colonialism. Its informative nature appeals to readers from all walks of life, but the academic rigour of the research underpinning the chapters makes it an excellent tool for researchers, postgraduate students and teachers.

Recommended Topics

Suggested themes include: -Local colonial wars (UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Belgium). -Military and political attitudes of the major metropolitan powers. -Native resistance. -Decolonisation processes. -Neo-colonialism.
