States without former colonies, it has been argued, were intensely involved in colonial practices. This anthology looks at Switzerland, which, by its very strong economic involvements with colonialism, its doctrine of neutrality, and its transnationally entangled scientific community, constitutes a perfect case in point.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Colonial Switzerland is awkwardly intriguing given a lack of Swiss colonies overall. ... Colonial Switzerland looks at Switzerland `as a country shaped by colonialism in a variety of ways' ... and thereby explores overlooked avenues of inquiry tied to the `colonialism at the margins' or `colonialism without colonies' ... . Colonial Switzerland constitutes, without a doubt, a valuable contribution to ongoing conversations around the study of `colonialism without colonies' ... a scholarly interest apparent well beyond the small Alpine state." (Martin Kalb, Itinerario, Vol. 40 (1), April, 2016)
