About this book

The British Empire drew on the talents of many remarkable figures whose lives reveal a wonderfully rich interweaving with the crucial issues of the period. In some cases, they left a legacy of travel writing, novels, biography and ethnography which made important contributions to our knowledge of other cultures. "Writing, Travel and Empire" explores the lives and writings of ten such figures, including Sir George Grey, Winwood Reade, Roger Casement, and Gertrude Bell. Embracing issues, such as gender and travel, racial science, the globalisation of 'native management', the internal colonies, and with a geographical coverage that extends from South America to Russia via Africa and the South Seas, the essays will engage all those with an interest in cultural geography, postcolonial studies, anthropology, biography and travel writing.
