"Decolonization and its Impact provides a well-written survey of mid-twentieth century decolonization. Shipway's expertise in the French experience of this period is self-evident and, with Madagascar and Sudan, he has focused on case studies which are often overlooked in works of this kind. The book is based on an extensive bibliography, and while not dramatically re-casting existing historical explanations, it will make a welcome addition to undergraduate reading lists on decolonization." (South African Historical Journal, July 2010)
"[The] book represents a notable accomplishment, a feat of stylish synthesis and compression which will inject still greater energy into an already vigorous debate." (H-Soz-u-Kult, June 2010)“This book offers both original insights and a meticulous engagement with the existing historiography on the subject.” (The American Historical Review, February 2010)
"It provides a much needed comparative review of European decolonization, grounded in a thorough survey of the most recent literature on the subject ... .A rich, insightful and deeply rewarding survey of decolonization." (The International History Review, December 2009)
"The scope of the account is global ... with an admirable combination of detail and attention to broad historic trends. Recommended." (CHOICE)
"A master of concision, Shipway presents a complex story with clarity and verve. Wearing his scholarly erudition lightly, he combines up-to-date historiography with engaging case studies and lucid prose."
—Jane Samson, University of Alberta
