"The Victorians were people with vision - they were ambitious and outward looking, always seeking to change and improve society. Published to coincide with a major exhibition at the V & A, this illustrated and broad-ranging survey looks at how the Victorians went about creating a new, more modern world: at home in domestic and public life, and globally, as the Empire expanded and widened their horizons. They achieved this through a combination of technology, trade and new ideas."--Jacket
Orientalism : history, theory, and the arts by John M MacKenzie( Book )

30 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Orientalism debate, inspired by the work of Edward Said, has been a major source of cross-disciplinary controversy in recent years. John Mackenzie offers a comprehensive re-evaluation of the vast literature on Orientalism, bringing to the subject some highly original historical perspectives. The book provides the first major discussion of Orientalism by a historian of imperialism. Setting the analysis within the context of conflicting scholarly interpretations, Mackenzie carries the discussion into wholly new areas, testing the notion that the Western arts received genuine inspiration from the East by examining the visual arts, architecture, design, music, and theater
Imperialism and popular culture( Book )

24 editions published between 1985 and 2010 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular culture is invariably a vehicle for the dominant ideas of its age. Never was this more true than in the late-19th and early 20th centuries, when it reflected the nationalist and imperialist ideologies current throughout Europe. This text examines the various media through which nationalist ideas were conveyed in late-Victorian and Edwardian times - in the theatre, "ethnic" shows, juvenile literature, education and the iconography of popular art. Several chapters look beyond World War I, when the most popular media, cinema and broadcasting, continued to convey an essentially late-19th-century world view, while government agencies like the Empire Marketing Board sought to convince the public of the economic value of empire. Youth organizations, which had propagated imperialist and militarist attitudes before the war, struggled to adapt to the new internationalist climate

In addition to covering today's nation-states, there's information on the minorities who live in these countries (such as the Basques in Spain); the various diasporas created by dispersed peoples (Kurds, Jews); significant cultural, but non-ethnic groups, including Maronite Christians; and even extinct populations like the Goths
The empire of nature : hunting, conservation, and British imperialism by John M MacKenzie( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imperialism was more than a set of economic, political, and military phenomena. It was a habit of mind, a dominant idea in the era of European world supremacy which had widespread intellectual, cultural, and technical expressions. Changing approaches to hunting constitute an important theme in human history. The pursuit and killing of animals has invariably developed ideological overtones and both literature and the pictorial arts have tended to stress the mythic, courtly, and martial rather than the purely practical aspects of the chase. Nineteenth century European hunters—aware of this rich tradition—turned hunting into a symbolic activity of global dominance, and thus of the culture of imperialism. Hunting was closely connected to economics, social functions, the study of natural history, and the technological development of firearms, while being subject to complex legislation. This volume examines hunting as one focus of the interaction of Europeans with Africans and Indians, while illuminating the nature of imperial power when exercised in the relationship between humans and the natural world

Scotland and the British Empire by John M MacKenzie( Book )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The extraordinary influence of Scots in the British Empire has long been recognised. As administrators, settlers, temporary residents, professionals, plantation owners, and as military personnel, they were strikingly prominent in North America, the Caribbean, Australasia, South Africa, India, and colonies in South-East Asia and Africa. Throughout these regions they brought to bear distinctive Scottish experience as well as particular educational, economic, cultural, and religious influences. Moreover, the relationship between Scots and the British Empire had a profound effect upon many aspects of Scottish society. This volume of essays, written by notable scholars in the field, examines the key roles of Scots in central aspects of the Atlantic and imperial economies from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries, in East India Company rule in India, migration and the preservation of ethnic identities, the environment, the army, missionary and other religious activities, the dispersal of intellectual endeavours, and in the production of a distinctive literature rooted in colonial experience. Making use of recent, innovative research, the chapters demonstrate that an understanding of the profoundly inter-active relationship between Scotland and the British Empire is vital both for the understanding of the histories of that country and of many territories of the British Empire. -- Book jacket

The Scots in South Africa : ethnicity, identity, gender and race, 1772-1914 by John M MacKenzie( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The description of South Africa as a 'rainbow nation' has always been taken to embrace the black, brown and white peoples who constitute its population. But each of these groups can be sub-divided and in the white case, the Scots have made one of the most distinctive contributions to the country's history. The Scots, as in North America and Australasia, constituted an important element in the patterns of White settlement. They were already present in the area of Dutch East India Company rule and, after the first British occupation of the Cape in 1795, their numbers rose dramatically. They were exceptionally active in such areas as exploration, botanical and scientific endeavour, military campaigns, the emergence of Christian missions, Western education, intellectual institutions, the professions as well as enterprise and technical developments, business, commerce and journalism. This book is the first full-length study of their role from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries. It highlights the interaction of Scots with African peoples, the manner in which missions and schools were credited with producing 'Black Scotsmen' and the ways in which they pursued many distinctive policies. It also deals with the inter weaving of issues of gender, class and race as well as with the means by which Scots clung to their ethnicity through founding various social and cultural societies. This book offers a major contribution to both Scottish and South African history and in the process illuminates a significant field of the Scottish Diaspora that has so far received little attention
European impact and Pacific influence : British and German colonial policy in the Pacific Islands and the indigenous response by European impact and pacific influence (Conference)( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British and German ambitions have clashed in the Pacific at many times in the last two centuries. This is a study of those episodes, and their effects on the European powers and the Pacific Islanders involved. It throws light on the activities of missionaries in Micronesia, head-hunters in New Guinea, Law-makers in Tonga and the influence of the British and Germans in the region. The book considers: European perceptions of Pacific islanders and vice versa the ecological effect of European intervention, both on the environment and its inhabitants the efforts to impose a European rule of law in the South Pacific the area of sexuality as a specific form of Pacific-European interaction where cultural differences between European and traditional behaviour was at its most marked
Exhibiting the Empire : Cultures of Display and the British Empire by John McAleer( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exhibiting the Empire considers how a whole range of cultural products - from paintings, prints, photographs, panoramas and 'popular' texts to ephemera, newspapers and the press, theatre and music, exhibitions, institutions and architecture - were used to record, celebrate and question the development of the British Empire. It represents a significant and original contribution to our understanding of the relationship between culture and empire. Written by leading scholars from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, individual chapters bring fresh perspectives to the interpretation of media, material culture and display, and their interaction with history. Taken together, this collection suggests that the history of empire needs to be, in part at least, a history of display and of reception
Scotland, empire and decolonisation in the twentieth century( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents one of the first attempts to examine the connection between Scotland and the British empire throughout the entire twentieth century. As the century dawned, the Scottish economy was still strongly connected with imperial infrastructures (like railways, engineering, construction and shipping), and colonial trade and investment. By the end of the century, however, the Scottish economy, its politics, and its society had been through major upheavals which many connected with decolonisation. The end of empire played a defining role in shaping modern-day Scotland and the identity of its people. Written by scholars of distinction, these chapters represent ground-breaking research in the field of Scotland's complex and often-changing relationship with the British empire in the period. The introduction that opens the collection will be viewed for years to come as the single most important historiographical statement on Scotland and empire during the tumultuous years of the twentieth century. A final chapter from Stuart Ward and Jimmi Østergaard Nielsen covers the 2014 referendum
Empires of nature and the nature of empires : imperialism, Scotland and the environment : the Callander lectures, delivered in the University of Aberdeen, 2-7 November 1995 by John M MacKenzie( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally delivered as the Callander Lectures at the University of Aberdeen in 1995, this is a survey of the historiography of the environmental history of the British Empire, suggesting new modes of analysis and connections with the Scottish experience. Environmental history has grown considerably as an area of historical study. This historiography offers opportunities for the globalizing of human history in relation to its natural context. Within this field, some of the major studies have emerged in relation to the British Empire, examining the environmental effects of the social and economic impact of imperialism in the various continents of the world. The book undertakes a survey of this literature. It examines a wide range of research and publications, and divides them into the apocalyptic, the neo-whiggish and the longer-perspective schools. The author takes some of the contributors to task for their analytical excesses, and makes suggestions for the future direction of the field. In doing so, it draws parallels with current environmental issues. It also connects studies of the environment to the Scottish experience, and the dominance of the Scots in the relevant agencies of the British Empire."--Pub. desc
