"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."--BOOK JACKET
Orientalism : history, theory, and the arts by John M MacKenzie ( Book )
26 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 726 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 )
20 editions published between 1985 and 2006 in English and held by 687 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

The Scots in South Africa : ethnicity, identity, gender and race, 1772-1914 by John M MacKenzie ( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the first full-length study of the important role of the Scots in the patterns of White settlement in South Africa, where they were very 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
Scotland and the British Empire ( Book )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 322 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
European empires and the people : popular responses to imperialism in France, Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Italy by Giuseppe Finaldi ( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first book to survey in comparative form the transmission of imperial ideas to the public in six European countries in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The chapters, focusing on France, Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Italy, provide parallel studies of the manner in which colonial ambitions and events in the respective European empires were given wider popular visibility. The international group of contributors, who are all scholars working at the cutting edge of these fields, place their work in the context of governmental policies, the economic bases of imperial expansion, major events such as wars of conquest, the emergence of myths of heroic action in exotic contexts, religious and missionary impulses, as well as the new media which facilitated such popular dissemination. Among these media were the press, international exhibitions, popular literature, educational institutions and methods, ceremonies, church sermons and lectures, monuments, paintings and much else. --

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 )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 83 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
