Empires in World War I: Shifting Frontiers and Imperial Dynamics in a Global Conflict
Edited by: Richard Fogarty, Andrew Jarboe
Soon after the guns in Belgium and France had signalled the commencement of what would become the world’s single most destructive conflict to date, the British, Ottoman, German, Russian, Austro-Hungarian, French and Belgian Empires were at war. Empires in World War I marks a turn away from the pre-eminence of the Western Front in the current scholarship, and seeks to reconstitute our understanding of this war as a truly global struggle between competing empires. Based on primary research, this book opens up new debates on the effects of the Great War in colonial arenas. The book asseses the effects of the war on Native Americans in the United States for example, as well as on the relationship between India and Pakistan, the British justice system in Palestine and the ‘imperial scramble’ in the Asia-Pacific region. Empires in World War I will be essential reading fro students and scholars of the twentieth century.
