9780521188289: The Burdens of Empire: 1539 to the Present

The entire course of modern Western history has been shaped by the rise and fall of the great European empires. The Burdens of Empire examines different aspects of this long history, focusing on how political theorists, jurists, historians and others sought to explain what an empire is and to justify its very existence.

Review:

Advance praise: 'No scholar has done more than Anthony Pagden to direct attention to the forms and fates of empire across human history. The Burdens of Empire should command a wide audience among intellectual historians, political theorists, early modernists, and imperial historians at all levels.' David Armitage, Lloyd C. Blankfein Professor of History and Chair of History, Harvard University, Massachusetts, and author of Foundations of Modern International Thought

Advance praise: 'These brilliant meditations on the durability of empire as a political form, and on the imperial origins of universal ideals from Stoic cosmopolitanism to international law and contemporary human rights, repeatedly demonstrate the novel theoretical insight that can come from immersive historical study. The chapter on imperial Spain ('Cambiar su ser') is a tour de force that exhibits Pagden's unrivalled authority on the political thought of the Spanish empire. With trenchant analysis, a wealth of information, and great breadth of reference, The Burdens of Empire breathes fresh life into themes from European aspirations to civilize 'barbarians', to the dangers of unlimited expansion, to the rise of political economy in the eighteenth century.' Jennifer Pitts, University of Chicago

Advance praise: 'Anthony Pagden has long been among the most penetrating and learned historians of early modern empire and political thought. The Burdens of Empire charts, with extraordinary lucidity, the implication of law in the European project of empire. This history includes complex efforts of both constraint on conquest and its legitimation. Above all, Pagden reveals the endowment left to the project of international law by its birth, alongside modern nationalism, in the crucible of the nineteenth century.' Cliff Ando, David B. and Clara E. Stern Professor, University of Chicago

From the Publisher:

Despite the long history of debate and the recent resurgence of interest in empires and imperialism, no one seems very clear as to what exactly an empire is. The Burdens of Empire strives to offer not only a definition but also a working description. This book examines how empires were conceived by those who ruled them and lived under them; it looks at the relations, real or imagined, between the imperial metropolis (when one existed) and its outlying provinces or colonies; and it asks how the laws that governed the various parts and various ethnic groups, of which all empires were made, were conceived and interpreted. Anthony Pagden argues that the evolution of the modern concept of the relationship between states, and in particular the modern conception of international law, cannot be understood apart from the long history of European empire building.
