Neisser, 1960. Social Research 27(1):63-82

Economic Imperialism Reconsidered
Hans Neisser

Social Research: An International Quarterly

Arien Mack, Editor

Volume 27, No. 1 (Spring 1960): 63-82

EXCERPT: Imperialism may be called the process of founding an empire beyond the nation's natural frontiers, with the aim of subjecting the population outside these frontiers to the political rule of the dominating country and to economic 'exploitation.' The first examples are probably the Assyrian empire in northern Mesopotamia around 1000 B.C., the Persian empire, founded in the sixth century, the Athenian 'hegemony' from the middle of the fifth century to its collapse in the Peloponnesian Wars, and the Roman 'empire' during the later time of the Roman republic. Imperialism of this type is distinguished from subjection of the native population by immigrating tribes or military bands, which is the most pronounced form of what A. Rustow has called Uberlangernung.
