185 bibliography – which is a very useful guide for further reading – but it is regrettable that either the editors or the publishers have taken the decision to forego footnotes. To single out just one example, in chapter 11 Anne Folke Henningsen refers to a public debate arranged by “a Danish journal” in the spring of 2015, and she even quotes from the editors’ introduction to the debate. But the journal in question is not referred to in the bibliography, as far as I can tell, so it is not easy to follow up this up. I presume that the lack of footnotes was inspired by the intention to make the book attractive to the broadest possible readership, which is a laudable aim in itself, but at the same time it is hard to comprehend why that should necessarily mean no footnotes. The book – and indeed the whole series – otherwise lives up to expectations in that regard: it is well-written, beautifully presented and generously illustrated. It would grace any bookshelves. But I fear it would also mostly have to remain on the bookshelf. This is a large and heavy volume, an essential addition to library collections but scarcely practical for reading away from a desk. I do not know if there are any plans to produce a condensed version of the series in paperback form, but I would very much hope that this would be the case. Even more importantly, I think it is essential that serious thought be given to producing an authoritative English translation of the entire series. The volume reviewed here is written by historians working in Danish universities, and it was presumably written largely with a Danish readership in mind. That is important of course, and there will undoubtedly continue to be important debates about colonialism in Denmark even now that the 2017 centenary has passed. An English translation would greatly assist in the challenge of incorporating Danish colonial history into its wider Nordic and European context, but also with writing a Danish colonial history that also incorporates the perspectives of historians working in the former colonies.23 BIBLIOGRAPHY Amirell, Stefan Eklöf: ’Den världshistoriska vändningen.
