Overview

Focusing the perspectives of gender scholarship on the study of empire produces an original volume full of fascinating new insights about the conduct of men as well as women. Bringing together disparate topics such as politics, medicine, sexuality, childhood, religion, migration, and many more, this new collection of essays demonstrates the richness of studying empire through the lens of gender. This inclusive examination asks not only why the British Empire was dominated by men, but how that domination affected the conduct of imperial politics. The fresh, new interpretations offered here will interest readers across a wide range, and will demonstrate the vitality of this innovative approach and the new historical questions it raises.
