Empire of the Raj by Robert J. Blyth

Book Description

British India, as a result of history, geopolitics and its unique status within the Empire, controlled a chain of overseas agencies that stretched from southern Persia to eastern Africa. This book examines how, as the relative importance of British interests steadily eclipsed those of India throughout the region, Indian sub-imperial impulses clashed with the relentlessly advancing metropole. The nature of the struggle over political control between Britain and Indian reveals differences in perception and approach during a period of profound change in Anglo-Indian relations.

Books By Author Robert J. Blyth

Representing Slavery by Robert J. Blyth Representing Slavery, Paperback (August 2014)

Newly available in paperback, Representing Slavery draws on the extensive collections of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, to offer unique insights into the histories and legacies of slavery, the slave trade and abolition from the mid-16th until the early 20th centuries.

Monsoon Traders by Robert J. Blyth Monsoon Traders, Hardback (August 2011)

Tells the story of the East India Company over three centuries. Illustrated throughout with images from the National Maritime Museum in London, which has an important but hitherto under-researched collection.

Dreadnought and the Edwardian Age by Robert J. Blyth Dreadnought and the Edwardian Age, Hardback (January 2010)

HMS Dreadnought (1906) is closely associated with the age of empire, the Anglo-German antagonism and the naval arms race before the First World War. This collection not only considers the strategic and operational impact of this 'all big gun' battleship, but also explores the many meanings Dreadnought had in politics and culture.
