Gender and Empire by Angela Woollacott
Book DescriptionOne of the first single-authored books to survey the role of sex and gender in the 'new imperial history', Gender and Empire covers the whole British Empire, demonstrating connections and comparisons between the white-settler colonies, and the colonies of exploitation and rule. Through key topics and episodes across a broad range of British Empire history, Angela Woollacott examines how gender ideologies and practices affected women and men, and structured imperial politics and culture. Woollacott integrates twenty years of scholarship, providing fresh insights and interpretation using feminist and postcolonial approaches. Fiction and other vivid primary sources present the voices of historical subjects, enlivening discussions of central topics and debates in imperial and colonial history. The circulation of imperial culture and colonial subjects along with conceptions of gender and race reveals the integrated nature of British colonialism from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries. Authoritative and approachable, this is essential reading for students of world history, imperial history and gender relations.

Settler Society in the Australian Colonies, Hardback (March 2015)
A fresh look at the history of the Australian colonies from the 1820s to the 1860s, a foundational period when free settlers gradually overtook convicts, the colonies dramatically expanded their territorial control, and both settlers and officials saw the potential for changes in the ways in which the colonies were governed.
