about

Much has been written about the forging of a British identity in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The process, not confined to the British Isles, extended across the Irish Sea and the Atlantic and was played out in North America and the Caribbean. The identities of Irish Catholics or Highland Scots who took part in the imperial venture abroad were subject to constant renegotiation. In the process, the indigenous peoples of North America, the Caribbean, the Cape, Australia, and New Zealand were forced to redefine their own identities. Although the encounter was far from equal, it was by no means simple or monolithic.

Empire and Others explores the many complex ways in which identities were forged within Britain and among indigenous peoples through a process of collision and compromise. With contributions from Africa, Australia, and both sides of the Atlantic, each chapter deals with a different aspect of British encounters with indigenous peoples in Colonial America and elsewhere and includes, for example, sections on Native Americans and early modern concepts of race and hunting and the politics of masculinity in Cherokee treaty-making.
