My own pragmatic preference is to reserve the word imperialism to indicate an ideology or discourse that motivates and legitimizes practices of expansionary domination by one society over another. I use the word colonization to indicate the act of imposing political domination over foreign territory and people, and use founding colonies to denote the act of establishing new settlements of colonists in alien lands, whether or not this is accompanied by colonization. This also implies that I use the word colony in a sense that is both far narrower than its nineteenth- and twentieth-century usage and broader than its original Latin meaning.

I do not harbor a futile pedantic desire to establish a semantic orthodoxy or to impose my definitions on the other authors in this book (in any case, rapid perusal of even a few chapters will make it abundantly clear that this has not happened 67). Rather, definitions are of concern for two reasons. First, these are all terms about which there is general consensus regarding their importance yet little agreement about their precise definition. 68 The contributors to this volume obviously share in this terminological heterodoxy.
