In a revision of the dissertation for his PhD in law at Tilburn University, Linden investigates the justification of European colonialism and imperialism. Though he answers the justification question regarding the European civilization mission only in legal terms, he says he had to involve the political, economic, social, and cultural context of colonialism and imperialism, as a legal historian should. He covers imperium, dominium, and responsibility under international law; territorium et titulus; British Nigeria; French equatorial Africa; German Cameroon; ex facto ius oritur; and a reflection on the nature of international law: redressing the illegality of Africa's colonization.
