Writing Imperial Histories, Hardback Book

Writing Imperial Histories Hardback

Edited by Andrew Thompson

Part of the Studies in Imperialism series

Description

This book appraises the critical contribution of the Studies in Imperialism series to the writing of imperial histories as the series passes its 100th publication.

The volume brings together some of the most distinguished scholars writing today to explore the major intellectual trends in Imperial history, with a particular focus on the cultural readings of empire that have flourished over the last generation.

When the Studies in Imperialism series was founded, the discipline of Imperial history was at what was probably its lowest ebb.

A quarter of a century on, there has been a tremendous broadening of the scope of what the study of empire encompasses.

Essays in the volume consider ways in which the series and the wider historiography have sought to reconnect British and imperial histories; to lay bare the cultural expressions and registers of colonial power; and to explore the variety of experiences the home population derived from the empire. -- .
