Classics and Imperialism in the British Empire

Edited by Mark Bradley

Classical Presences

  • The first systematic study of the relationship between British colonialism and classical discourses
  • Has strong interdisciplinary appeal: written by both classicists and modern historians
  • Chapters are linked by overarching themes: cultural ownership, 'hegemony' and European exceptionalism, the imperial cornucopia, the prevalence of elite metropolitan voices
