From 1625, when Charles I announed his intention to make settlements part of his royal empire, to 1689, when a colonial clergyman told William III that he might, if he pleased, be emperor of America, metropolitan power and colonial dependence shaped the politics of empire. Bliss (history, U. of Lancaster) extends the terms of debate over the origins of English imperialism by placing West Indian and North American colonization squarely in the context of 17th century English political history.
