journal of world history, june 2004 This work has theoretical ambitions in comparative history. Although comments are made about Africa, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, the emphasis is placed on the colonization experience of the Americas. In Africa and Asia most decolonization took place when the natives rebelled. In the Americas, it was the neo-Europeans that forced the Metropolitan powers to withdraw. Patricia Seed's methodological documentation has anecdotal references to her participation in conferences in the United States and England instead of archival visits. Her arguments often use linguistic explanations when written documentation or empirical evidence is necessary. Moreover, the relations between Europeans and Amerindians were not just based on legal, cultural, or religious explanations. It was of crucial significance the fact that the first Iberian arrivals at the peripheries consisted of a few male adventurers while English families went to relatively underpopulated areas. Despite the repetitive nature of Seed's discourse, it is well written. The footnotes are extensive, but a bibliography would have been helpful. hernán horna Uppsala University On the Edge of Empire: Hadramawt, Emigration, and the Indian Ocean, 1880s1930s.
