Editorial Reviews

In this volume, Hall (U. of Essex and University College, London) has collected 14 previously published essays that explore British colonialism and its political, cultural, social, and economic ramifications throughout the "empire" from the "metropolitan colony" of Ireland, to the more far flung regions of Africa, India, and Asia. Specific chapters focus on topics such as race and gender in the formation of citizenship, fantasy and the literature of tourism, early 20th-century evangelical propaganda, and current legacies of postcoloniality in Trinidad and Tobago.
