Stephen Conway

  • The first wide-ranging attempt to consider the continental European contribution to the eighteenth-century British Empire

  • Challenges recent scholarly emphasis on the strength of transnational forces undermining exclusionary empires
  • Draws on extensive research, especially in little-used archival sources
