"Women and the Colonial Gaze" examines the way images of women have been used by colonizers and subject peoples to define the colonial relationship. Unique features include essays on pre-modern imperialism, colonization within Europe, imperialism by non-European powers and intellectual imperialism by authors and scholars. These essays suggest that gender's use as a tool in the imperialist context is much older and more comprehensive than previously suggested. Using methodology drawn from several scholarly disciplines, the essays encourage comparative assessment of gender and imperialism.
