This chapter provides an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book marks and reflects the fact that the Manchester University Press Studies in Imperialism series has passed its 100th publication. The process likewise evident from the way the Series has, over time, ranged more widely geographically, with volumes focused on the imperial culture of metropolitan Britain increasingly matched by those focused on the history of one or more of the colonies. The book explores the deeper set of social and political contexts that informed the genesis and subsequent development of the Series and the conceptual links it has sought to forge between empire and metropolitan culture. It talks about the 'trans-nationalism of empire', the idea that colonialism was as powerful a trans-nationalising force than was anti-colonialism.
