Manchester Studies in Imperialism

With 162 titles, published over two decades, Manchester Studies in Imperialism is firmly positioned at the forefront of the study of imperial history.

The Studies in Imperialism series has played a progressive role in reshaping both British and Imperial histories by greatly expanding their respective repertoires to explore new and previously neglected subjects and by focusing attention more firmly on the tightly interwoven relationships between them.

Manchester Studies in Imperialism delivers a rich source of scholarship on cultural encounters between the coloniser and colonised, the circulation of power through the production and organisation of colonial knowledge, and the construction of identity both at the heart and on the margins of empire.
