People in this story

Professor Heather Streets-Salter is the co-author of Modern Imperialism and Colonialism: A Global Perspective (Prentice Hall, 2010). This new book investigates our evolving understanding of the origins, nature, mechanisms, and demise of modern empires from the formation of centralized gunpowder empires in Eurasia and parts of Africa to the demise of the bi-polar Cold War world. In the book, Professor Street-Salter evaluates empires as structures and also explores the doctrines, ideologies, and practices of imperialism and colonial rule.
