Publisher Description

This volume traces the history of the British Empire through the use of primary and secondary documentary sources. Selections are presented within a chronological framework and organized around a central theme of identity, providing a clear and coherent approach to the selected readings. General and section introductions explore such issues as the role of economics and religion in imperial expansion and rule; how indigenous and Creole populations constructed and

expressed their own identities; and what changes were wrought by the process of decolonization. With the emphasis on primary sources, this volume examines the phenomenon of British imperialism, while taking into account the wide range of debates that have recently invigorated the study of

imperialism.
