Policing Transnational Protest

Liberal Imperialism and the Surveillance of Anticolonialists in Europe, 1905-1945

Daniel Brückenhaus

  • Argues that the growing level of government surveillance in western Europe during the first half of the twentieth century was a central, underappreciated factor in the transnationalization of anticolonial movements.
  • Explores the pre-history of recent debates about current-day transnational government surveillance and its effects on civil liberties.
  • The first study to systematically examine and integrate archival sources on colonial surveillance in Europe from Britain, France, and Germany.
  • Highlights the importance of Germany for the creation of both pro- and anticolonial transnational networks in the first half of the twentieth century.
