Imperial benevolence : making British authority in the Pacific Islands by Jane Samson( )

14 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2,260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This analysis of British imperialism in the south Pacific explores the impulses behind British calls for the protection and "improvement" of islanders. From kingmaking projects in Hawai'l, ̃ Tonga, and Fiji to the "antislavery" campaign against the labor trade in the western Pacific, the author examines the deeply subjective, cultural roots permeating Britons' attitudes toward Pacific Islanders. By teasing out the connections between those attitudes and the British humanitarian and antislavery movements, Imperial Benevolence reminds us that nineteenth-century Britain was engaged in a global campaign for "Christianization and Civilization." Students and scholars of imperial, Pacific, and maritime history will welcome this impressive work - one that appreciates the complexities of the past, thus extending significantly our understanding of this multifaceted period
Race and empire by Jane Samson( )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The relationship between racism and imperialism has inspired one of the most prominent debates in contemporary scholarship. The connection between race and empire resulted in some of the greatest atrocities in history and its legacy remains today. Race and Empire provides a chronological account and analysis of the contentious history of racial science and its connections with imperial expansion." "Race and Empire also includes a selection of primary source documents, a Glossary of terms and a Who's Who of key figures, making it essential reading for students of world history, modern imperialism/colonialism and the history of anthropology."--Jacket
The British empire by Jane Samson( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Oxford Reader negotiates the varied and vital debates about the nature of imperialism to provide a broad history of the British Empire. Selected readings are presented within a chronological framework, from the origins of empire to decolonization and beyond, and are illuminated by a central theme of identity to reveal metropolitan, colonial, and indigenous perspectives. General and section introductions explore such issues as the role of economics and religion in imperial expansion ad rule; how indigenous and Creole populations constructed and expressed their own identities; and what changes were wrought by the process of decolonization. This Reader takes a global comparative approach and includes a chronological table and maps to reveal the full extent of British expansion, enabling the study of regional empire to be seen in its wider context."--Jacket

Race and redemption : British missionaries encounter Pacific peoples, 1797-1920 by Jane Samson( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Race and Redemption is the latest volume in the Studies in the History of Christian Missions series, which explores the significant, yet sometimes controversial, impact of Christian missions around the world. In this historical examination of the encounter between British missionaries and people in the Pacific Islands, Jane Samson reveals the paradoxical yet symbiotic nature of the two stances that the missionaries adopted--"othering" and "brothering." She shows how good and bad intentions were tangled up together and how some blind spots remained even as others were overcome. Arguing that gender was as important a category in the story as race, Samson paints a complex picture of the interactions between missionaries and native peoples--and the ways in which perspectives shaped by those encounters have endured
