Description - British Imperialism by Rob Johnson
This guide offers a succinct, easy-to-read introduction to the key issues and historiography of British imperialism from the late 18th century to 2002. Each chapter addresses questions posed by the nature of imperialism in its various military, economic, political and cultural forms, while current controversies - including the impact of Orientalism and post-colonialism - are explained and set in the context of previous debates. The first book in Palgrave Macmillan's new "Histories and Controversies" series, "British Imperialism" enables readers to rapidly assimilate both historiography and key aspects of Britain's imperial power and influence.
