Everything is touched by our colonial past, from the way we see the world to the food we eat. Our contemporary preoccupations and ills from globalisation to humanitarian intervention to international terrorism have colonialism somewhere in their genetic make-up. The character and policies of contemporary international organizations from the United Nations to the European Union - have also been deeply affected by the colonial inheritance of their members, whether as perpetrators or victims . Weaving together the complex strands of history and politics into one compact narrative, this book addresses the key theories of colonialism, examining them against contemporary realities."@en ;
