It is certainly more coherent than Marc Ferro’s Histoire des colonisations: des conquetes aux independances, XIIIe-XXe siecle (Paris, 1994). Ferro’s book was recently translated and takes a broad view, but it is over four hundred pages long and poorly or-ganized. Colonialism is more compact and more com-parative and is based on fresher secondary works than Raymond F. Betts’s highly readable Uncertain Dimen-sions: Western Overseas Empires in the Twentieth Century (Minneapolis, 1985) and other books of comparable.

"Osterhammel (History, U. of Constance) argues that the global mercantile expansion of the European powers of the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries bears a marked resemblance to the political imperialism of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Further, although there are some differences in scope and timing, the colonizers had similar aims and experiences. Instead, Osterhammel finds more significant the intentions and goals of the individual colonies, which he groups into those that were exploited for raw materials, land and labor, those that served for settlement, and those that served as military installations. He finds each type has distinctive features, such as ethno-cultural demarcation, and clear differences in economic management and administration, which lead to very different outcomes as colonies gained independence. Osterhammel provides a new bibliography for this edition." --Book News
