Christopher Prior

Published by Manchester University Press

Studies in Imperialism MUP

  • Looks at impact of the British Empire on the British in a new way - through how domestic attitudes to empire shaped the ways that officials went about their work overseas
  • Revisionist work that argues counter to received wisdom on the topics of how officials related to one another, how they approached Africa and Africans, and how they approached their own jobs
  • Written in non-technical language, making the work easily accessible to those without prior knowledge of imperial or African history
  • Addresses the latest historiographical issues concerning imperialism to have emerged in the last twenty years
