Decolonization and Nationalism Triumphant: Crash Course World History #40

READ THIS: THERE ARE TWO MORE VIDEOS IN THE WORLD HISTORY SERIES. You should also turn on the captions. You’ll like them.

In which John Green teaches you about the post-World War II breakup of most of the European empires. As you’ll remember from previous installments of Crash Course, Europeans spent several centuries sailing around the world creating empires, despite the fact that most of the places they conquered were perfectly happy to carry on alone. After World War II, most of these empires collapsed. This is the story of those collapses. In most places, the end of empire was not orderly, and violence often ensued. While India was a (sort of) shining example of non-violent change, in places like The Congo, Egypt, Rwanda, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, things didn’t go smoothly at all. John brings you all this, plus pictures of Sea Monkeys. Sadly, they don’t look anything like those awesome commercials in the comic books.

  1. Speaking about decolonization without mentioning neocolonialism, capitalism, Western-organized coups to take down e.g. Mosaddegh or Lumumba or Sankara, inequalities, imposition of Western standards (e.g. economic growth or university diplomas), etc… Seems a bit partial and incomplete?

  2. I am Congolese born and Burundian raised, both mentioned in the video, I thought the historical facts were as close as they can get. An innocent laughter on these matters is always a good thing. Yes African countries didn't have sufficient time to develop as Europeans did, but we are surely catching up.

    Ps: I will soon be the 17th congolese to get a college degree😆😆😆

    One of the avatar of our creator God, in the cricket attire.
    Yeah we like to see them as much human (like ourself) as we can.
    Hail Lord SwamiNarayan 😄✌️🏽

  4. Sadly, today India is ruled by followers of Gandhi's assassin. The world needs to intervene because clearly all institutions within the country are compromised and we're just a step away from.being like North Korea.

  5. John – "You never knew what happened AFTER the rebels victory in Star Wars!"

    Me – "Oh…. oh John…. We should've wished for it to stay that way…"

  6. NO EMPIRES HAVE EMERGED TO REPLACE THE ONES THAT FELL LMFAO WTF

    the american empire, it's been the american empire and the chinese and russian empires largely the uk was the sick man for a while brexit has pushed them off the edge of irrelevance on the global stage and now the us especially in a post covid19 world is definitely the sick man

    "the [empires] couldn't very well say to the colonial troops who'd fought alongside them thank you so much for helping us to thwart germany's imperialistic ambitions—as a reward please return your rifle and return to your state of subjugation"
    BUT THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THE US DID DO YOU NOT REMEMBER NATIVE AMERICAN CODE TALKERS

    *NATIVE AMERICAN LANGUAGES WERE //ILLEGAL// UNTIL 1978——1978!!!!!*

  7. Crash Course will forever be helpful…I wonder how many high school history teachers have just told their students "watch all the crash course videos and you'll be done for the year."

  8. Just a quick shout out to the Hindu nationalist party to assassinated Gandhi which, fun fact, is the same Hindu nationalist party lead by the current Prime Minister Modi.
