Studies in Imperialism MUP

  • Challenges recent studies to show that Imperial culture was neither generic nor unimportant but was instead multi-layered and recast to capture the concerns of a locality
  • Draws from a rich seam of primary sources which are considered against an extensive analysis of seminal and current historiography.
  • Identifies the important synergies that grew between a new civic culture of the late nineteenth century and the wider imperial project
  • Offers a ground-breaking perspective on how imperial culture was disseminated in English society
