This paper engages with two emblematic cases—British rule over India and French occupation of Algeria, as they are presented in the “Nouvelle Géographie Universelle”, considering Elisée Reclus' analysis of imperialism and his novel critique of colonial power. In doing so, it demonstrates that far from being conventional, the NGU is a radical and interesting resource for those struggling to construct a critical discourse on Europe, otherness and colonialism
