Summary:
Using narrative theory and postcolonial theory, this study reveals the cultural changes that turned England from a nation that abstained from investing in the internationally conceived Suez Canal to an imperial power who, by 1875, owned it. Arguing that literary genre was itself a technology that spread imperialism, Murray shows how roads, canals, and novels colonized the Middle East.
