Encyclopedia of Colonialism

Call for contributors

The Encyclopedia of Colonialism (EoC)--a 1,200-page, three-volume, illustrated reference work--is soliciting entry writers. Professor Melvin E. Page is serving as General Editor of the EoC, which is being produced by East River Books and will be published by ABC-CLIO in 2001.

The EoC will be a unique, contemporary, and comprehensive reference work covering the subject of colonialism and imperialism in the modern (post-1400) period, including significant anti-colonial movements. We expect it to be the definitive reference work on the subject for years to come, and it will be periodically updated to reflect developments in the field.

Presently we are soliciting statements of interest in the project and are also actively seeking contributing authors for approximately eighty major entries as well as over 500 additional general indexed entries. We are particularly interested in identifying contributors who would be able to undertake delivery of completed entries within relatively short deadlines, necessary to met the projected publication schedule.

If you would like more information, including a list of entries, please contact:
