« Tout empire périra » , Jean-Baptiste Duroselle 
La guerre est à l’origine des empires, elle est également l. a. reason principale de leur chute. los angeles défaite de 1914-1918 a fait disparaître les empires « monarchiques » (austro-hongrois, russe, ottoman). Les empires coloniaux ont été effacés de los angeles carte du globe à partir de 1945 : les uns à reason de leur défaite (Japon, Italie), les autres en dépit de leur victoire (Royaume- Uni de Grande-Bretagne et d’Irlande, France, Pays-Bas). 
Ce livre illustre une autre remarque de J.-B. Duroselle, « il n’y a pas d’histoire sans événements » ; il est un récit d’événements où les auteurs essaient d’en cerner les motives, de lier les facteurs et acteurs en faisceaux dynamiques et en établissant des liens voire des interactions entre eux. los angeles déconstruction des grands empires coloniaux édifiés outre-mer en plus d’un siècle s’est achevée en une trentaine d’années, le temps d’une génération d’hommes et de femmes. 
Cette histoire est déployée dans quatre théâtres géostratégiques : l’Asie orientale et méridionale, le monde méditerranéen méridional et oriental, l’Afrique subsaharienne et orientale et le monde du Pacifique. Aux quatre aires ainsi délimitées correspondent, grosso modo, quatre temporalités qui se succèdent de 1945 à 1990. 

Pierre BROCHEUX a enseigné l’histoire et los angeles géographie au lycée français de Saïgon de 1960 à 1968. Puis, l’histoire du XXe siècle à l’Université Paris VII-Denis Diderot de 1970 à 1997. Il consacre ses recherches à l’histoire contemporaine de l’Asie du Sud- Est tout en focalisant l’histoire de los angeles péninsule indochinoise. Il a publié des livres (voir liste des co-auteurs) et de très nombreux articles dans les revues d’histoire générale, d’histoire coloniale et d’histoire asiatique, en français et en anglais.
