Scott Cook/Colonial Encounters
A 3 page reaction paper that reviews Scott B. Cook's monograph Colonial Encounters in the Age of High Imperialism, which offers a comprehensive overview of the "last and most extensive phase of Western expansionism," which occurred between 1870 and 1914 (Cook xii). The author's stated intention is to "underscore the great variety of colonial experiences," as well as examine the "basic characteristics of imperialism" (Cook xii). This analytical examination of this text indicates that Cook succeeds admirably and achieves this goal. No additional sources cited.
