Britain's Imperial Muse: The Classics, Imperialism, and the Indian Empire, 1784-1914by C. Hagerman
Britain's Imperial Muse explores the classics' contribution to British imperialism and to the experience of empire in India through the long 19th century. It reveals the classics role as a foundational source for positive conceptions of empire and a rhetorical arsenal used by commentators to justify conquest and domination, especially of India.
