Editorial Reviews

"The texts are well-chosen, arresting and entertaining, with a judicious mix of the historically indispensable and the fascinatingly obscure." -- Alexander Morrison, Lecturer in Imperial History, University of Liverpool "This is a genuinely ground-breaking anthology of texts that has the potential to transform teaching and scholarship in the area. The editors are to be commended for their judicious choice of texts, and for their careful presentation of the material to students, teachers and scholars." -- Markman Ellis, Professor of English and Drama, Queen Mary, University of London
