Summary
"Focusing on Britain, France, and Germany, this book shows how the government surveillance of activists from the British and French colonies contributed to the transnationalization of anti-colonialist networks and ideologies during the first half of the twentieth century. Between 1905 and 1945, anti-colonialists who were active in western Europe and the pro-colonial authorities forced each other to expand the reach of their networks across inner-European borders. This process led both the supporters and the opponents of colonial rule to conceptualize their conflict in more global and trans-imperial terms, and it brought to light widespread disagreements between those Europeans who wished to prioritize imperial security over civil liberties and national sovereignty, and those who held the opposite view. In that context, the book traces growing levels of transnational government cooperation against anti-colonialists, and it pays special attention to the role of Germany, a country where many anti-colonialists were able to carry out their political work in relative safety after escaping increasing levels of government surveillance in Britain and France"--Provided by publisher
