        Asian Responses to Imperialism | Crash Course World History

        Join host John Green to learn about Asian perspectives on Imperialism, particularly those of writers from countries that were colonized by European powers. We'll look at the writings of Sayyid Jamal ad-Din al-Afghani from the Middle East, Liang Qichao from China, and Rabindranath Tagore from India. These voices from colonized countries give us a sense of how conquered people saw their conquerors and an insight into what these nations learned from being dominated by Europe. Much of this episode is drawn from a fascinating book by Pankaj Mishra called The Ruins of Empire: The Revolt Against the West and the Remaking of Asia.
