The philosopher W.B. Gallie argued many years ago that there could be no simple definition of words such as 'freedom' because they embodied what he called 'essentially contested concepts'. They were words whose meaning had to be fought over and whose compteting definitions arose out of political struggle and conflict. Imperialism, and its close ally, colonialism, are two such contested concepts. This set will give readers an insight in to the main lines of debate about the meanings of imperialism and colonialism over the last two centuries.

Im Schatten der Pax Britannica verdichteten sich Kommunikationsstrukturen, die man heute mit dem Begriff Globalisierung charakterisiert. Kurzum: Das britische Weltreich hat untilgbare Spuren hinterlassen. Dennoch vollzog sich der Prozeß der Dekolonisation nach 1945 aus britischer Perspektive nicht nur vergleichsweise schnell, sondern auch erstaunlich geräuschlos. Die in jüngster Zeit von inner- wie außerwissenschaftlichen Impulsen neu angeregte Empire-Forschung hat jedoch Zweifel an der Version eines >disimperialism ohne Trauma oder Tränen angemeldet. Allerdings fehlten bislang empirisch fundierte Untersuchungen zur inneren Dekolonisation Großbritanniens. Vor allem die veröffentlichte Meinung wurde von der Forschung weitgehend außer acht gelassen.
