It’s going to be the biggest epitaph on the continent. Anyway, thank you so much. It’s really amazing to be here and for so many people to show up. I think the last time I gave the Katz lecture there weren’t that many people. There were a lot of people, though….

Part of the age of mass politics in Europe in the 1880s and 1890s, before World War I, involved massive support for the New Imperialism. What was new about the New Imperialism? What period do we talk about as having had the New Imperialism? It’s…
