The Impact of the English Colonization of Ireland in the Sixteenth Century: A
 Hendrix, Scott E.
2012 0-7734-2658-2 140 pages
No scholarship exists on the English colonization of Ireland in the sixteenth centuries from a post-colonial perspective, and this book seeks to fill in that gap in the literature. While aimed at academic generalists, and described as an introduction to the topic, the book expands ongoing discussions about the nature of imperialism, and whether or not there is a paradigmatic way in which it occurs that transcends its particular time and place. Ireland is a microcosm that when studied reveals how the contemporary world still shows lingering traces of colonialism. Hendrix convincingly shows how English involvement in the region forever changed the cultural landscape of Ireland.

Willi Munzenbery, the League Against Imperialism, and the Comintern, 1925-1933 ( 2 Volume Set)
 Petersson, Fredrik
2014 0-7734-4298-7 1152 pages
A monumental study filled with ‘never before’ revealed information and facts from the archives in Moscow, Berlin, Amsterdam, London and Stockholm uncovering why the Comintern established and supported the League against Imperialism and for National Independence (LAI, 1927-37) and its anti-imperialist agenda. A riveting study of intrigue, power struggles, and personal ambitions deftly defined by communist ideology and strategy with eminent activists like Münzenberg, Nehru and Albert Einstein this is a ‘must have’ resource reference.

This book represents the product of a very substantial amount of original research which transforms our understanding of the history of the League against Imperialism. Until Petersson availed himself of the opportunities afforded by the opening of the Russian archives comparatively little was known about the LAI, its organization, its relations with the Comintern, or the role of its principal players, particularly that of Willi Munzenberg.
