The essays in this volume are informative and thought-provoking. Six accomplished historians offer an exceptional range of insights and raise interesting comparative questions about the definition and nature of empire.—Dominic Lieven, author of Empire: The Russian Empire and Its Rivals

This is a thoughtful, wide-ranging contribution to debates on the past and future of empire. Taken as a whole, the volume offers new ways to think about identity and empire and highlights how the rise of empires transforms the international system; usually creating instability, uncertainty, and new hierarchies of power. This impressive book offers a comparative analysis and fresh approach for the study of empire that makes it valuable for a broad readership interested in world history and international politics.—Jeremi Suri, author of Henry Kissinger and the American Century
