Because it coincided with the spread of European economic and political hegemony, it tends to be taken for granted that Christian missions went hand in hand with imperialism and colonial conquest. In this book historians survey the relationship between Christian missions and the British Empire from the 17th century to the 1960s and treat the subject thematically, rather than regionally or chronologically. Many of these themes are treated at length for the first time.--Book jacket."@en
