Overview

Imperial rule, commerce, culture and contestation of empire are all represented in this volume, with a particular (but by no means exclusive) focus on aspects and consequences of Britain's Asian empire, as well as reflections on Irish engagements with the British imperial phenomenon. While engagements between colonisers (including those bringing with them a 'civilising mission') and indigenous peoples are explored, so too are cultural perceptions of empire by Britons, and Britain by the colonised who ventured to the imperial 'Mother Country'. Unexpected corners of the imperial experience are covered, including Belfast-supported missionaries in Nigeria and French Canadian sympathizers for Irish nationalists. Affirmations of empire stand side by side with contestations in, for example, China, Ireland, Africa and Canada. *** "...contributions add up to a lively and many-faceted volume that will profit all students of the British Empire..." - Victorian Studies, Vol. 54, No. 4, Summer 2012ò
