In the history of European imperialism, two dates mark moments of recoil in the triumphant march of European conquest of the Asiatic and African world: Adowa and Tsushima. This chapter argues that the former is undoubtedly the more important, as it stands out as the victory of a continent struggling against colonial settlement in a period during which this settlement was victorious everywhere over African resistance, and describes the battle.
