The rise and fall of modern colonial empires have had a lasting impact on the development of European political theory and notions of national identity. This book is the first to compare theories of empire as they emerged in, and helped to define, the great colonial powers Spain, Britain, and France. Anthony Pagden describes how the rulers of the three countries adopted the claim of the Roman Emperor Antoninus to be "Lord of all the World." Examining the arguments used to legitimate the seizure of aboriginal lands and subjugation of aboriginal peoples, he shows that each country came to develop identities--and the political languages in which to express them--that were sometimes radically different. Until the early eighteenth century, Spanish theories of empire stressed the importance of evangelization and military glory. These arguments were challenged by the French and British, however, who increasingly justified empire building by invoking the profit to be gained from trade and agriculture. By the late eighteenth century, the major thinkers in all three countries, and increasingly in the colonies themselves, came to think of their empires as disastrous experiments in human expansion, costly, over-extended, and based on demoralizing forms of brutality and servitude. Pagden concludes by looking at the ways in which this hostility to empire was transformed into a cosmopolitan ideal that sought to replace all world empires by federations of equal and independent states.… (lisätietoja)

The author strives to portray various currents of learned debate circling in Spain, Britain and France as these countries built and exploited their American colonies and finally lost control over them. Comparisons to the Roman Empire were particularly prominent among the authors discussed in the first half of the book, while those closer to the end had come to consider commercial exchange among more or less self-governing units more preferable than bare domination.

The author goes into quite a bit of detail in reviewing the arguments presented in various literary works. This inevitably creates a somewhat fragmented overall picture. Although the author does his best to interconnect writers and works in a general framework of explanation, the 200 pages in this book are a bit too short to really form a clear historical narrative over three centuries. It would not had hurt to lengthen this book by about 100 pages to provide more information about the historical events which influenced the literary debates. The author assumes quite a bit of familiarity among his readers with both Spanish, English and French colonial history, as he only touches briefly upon the historical background in each case.

All in all this is probably a good book for readers who are already well-versed in both the history of European thought and colonialism. It is not a useful introductory book to either subject.
