Colonialism, imperialism, and neocolonialism are terms that remain undefined despite the enormous literature devoted to the phenomena. Within the academy and without, a critical evaluation of colonialism, imperialism, and neocolonialism is going on-and definition is a pre-requisite for critical evaluation. A model for generating definitions that are logically consistent is offered in this paper. The model first identifies the variables relevant to colonialism and imperialism and then hierarchically orders the variables, with definitions resulting at each level. A procedure by which the definitions may be modified by future research findings is offered. Finally, it is suggested that the relationship between social stratification systems and colonialism and imperialism may be defined through a further articulation of the model presented here.
