"Politics and Empire in Victorian Britain: A Reader" is the first source book to track the role the British Empire played in domestic politics, social attitudes and intellectual and cultural life. Unlike most other books on this subject, the reader also highlights women's contributions to both domestic and imperial questions, and takes account of colonial men's and women's activities as well. The reader introduces the intersections of "home" and "empire" so that the effects of imperialism on Victorian politics and society can be fully appreciated.
