Колониальные империи Португалии, Испании, Франции, Великобритании, Нидерландов, Бельгии, Германии, Италии и Соединенных Штатов - охватывали в то или иное время обе Америки и Австралию, девяносто девять процентов Полинезии, девяносто процентов Африки и почти пятьдесят процентов Азии.
Эти западные страны, которые вместе составляли менее двух процентов от поверхности планеты, создали первые заморские империи, которые простирались по всему земному шару.
Европейские колонисты, попадавшие в любую пригодную для жилья область, внедряли и распространяли христианство повсюду во всём колониальном мире. Они экспортировали языки, законы, учреждения, технологии и ценности Запада почти всем странам, народам, и культурам во всем мире.
Этот политический, экономический, и культурный экспансионизм изменял неевропейские общества и культуры, с которыми входил в контакт. Легко представить, что исследование истории и природы западного колониализма - предмет достаточно противоречивый и дискуссионный."Энциклопедия западного колониализма с 1450 г." - наиболее полная и всесторонняя, работа о западном колониализме, начиная с португальских плаваний Генриха Мореплавателя в пятнадцатом столетии и до создания художественных фильмов о британском колониализме в Индии в двадцать первом веке. "Энциклопедия" представляет более четырёхсот статей в трех томах, и это не только научная работа, охватывающая мировую историю в течение прошлых пяти столетий, но также международный интеллектуальный проект.Образцы сканов:

With a free hand in Aceh, a prestigious colonial prize as well as a rich agricultural area and a repository of mineral oil, the annexation of Aceh became a priority for the Netherlands. The military struggles that took place in Aceh for forty years, from 1873 to 1913, were to be of central importance in shaping the Netherlands Indies colonial state and, eventually, the Republic of Indonesia. The Aceh War can be divided into three phases: 1873 to 1893, 1894 to 1903, and 1904 to 1913. The first phase heralded several Dutch efforts at conquering and pacifying Aceh.
