Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the undisputed best introduction to the history of the world-wide pattern of British activity in the nineteenth century, embracing its expansive spirit as well as its formal territorial empire. The dynamics of this extraordinary enterprise are considered broadly: the high-political concerns of strategy and international geopolitics are analyzed, as well as the economic dimension, missionary activity, and racial attitudes, together with a wide range of cultural aspects, including sport and the pursuit of sexual opportunity. Nor is the personal contribution of some of the leading Victorian figures neglected.

Synopsis:

This look at British activity in the 19th century analyses: the high political concerns of strategy and international geopolitics, economic dimension, missionary activity, racial attitudes, and a wide range of cultural aspects, including sport and the pursuit of sexual opportunity.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 358-363) and index.
