By: Beth Fowkes Tobin
280 pages, 30 b/w illus
Tobin shows how dominion over the tropics, as both a region, and an idea, became central to the way in which Britons imagined their role in the world. He suggests that intellectual and visual mastery of the tropics - through the creation of art and literature - accompanied material appropriations of land, labour, and natural resources.
