This chapter discusses the theme of this volume, which is about imperial citizenship in the British Empire. This volume examines how imperial ideologues used the language of imperial citizenship as part of broader discourses concerning the purpose, the constitution, and the future of Empire in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The first section provides an exegesis of the theoretical underpinnings of various conservative arguments for the creation of an imperial citizenship and the second offers an examination of the applicability of such abstract constructions in practice through case studies of the citizenship issues of imperial naturalisation, immigration and emigration. This volume also analyzes the views of several British national figures on imperialist citizenship, including Lionel Curtis, John Buchan and Arnold White.
