The Colonisation of Time

Ritual, Routine and Resistance in the British Empire

Giordano Nanni

Published by Manchester University Press

Studies in Imperialism MUP

  • The book is a highly original and long-overdue examination of the ways that European concepts of time were imposed on other cultures as a component of colonisation
  • Despite the overwhelmingly obvious importance of time in the restructuring of everyday life, no single book has yet systematically analysed its role within the history of colonisation
  • It offers an enduring contribution to the literature on Time and colonisation, and will be cited as a seminal text for many years to come
  • Highlights its cultural, metaphysical and hegemonic facets of time
  • Brings together two complex subjects - time and colonialism - in an engaging, non-theoretical and accessible style
