on the art of the political cartoon has been somewhat less robust. 3 It is with an eye to making preliminary redress of the imbalance that we offer a case study of political cartoons treating US foreign policy towards Cuba that appeared in Punch in the two decades between 1840 and 1859. During this period, one can discern the influence of generic permutations in the novel on contemporaneous cartoon representations of colonial ambitions, both old and new, in the New World

The iconography of Anglo-American inter-imperialism

historian of visual culture Bonnie Miller has noted – gave them a ‘critical voice in the unfolding dialogue about American foreign policy’. 2 As the chapters in this volume make clear, cartooning was an imperial medium. Just as British comic art came of age in the context of a rapidly expanding British Empire, in the United States, graphic artists were key protagonists in the ‘Great Debate’ over empire that convulsed turn-of-the-century American politics. What follows focuses on the leading illustrated journals of Puck

The Round Table and the end of empire
Alex May

Empire was relatively unique. Its emphasis on Empire/Commonwealth ‘unity’ in foreign policy and its belief that the Empire/Commonwealth could serve to bolster Britain’s role as a ‘world’ power were not. Nevertheless the reader of United Empire (the journal of the Royal Empire Society) would be hard pressed to find evidence of a belief that the international context within which the Empire operated had

foreign policy objectives. 78 Calls for a decentring of the London secretariat’s authority also grew, with large sections in Sweden and Belgium now making up a significant percentage of the organisation’s global membership, and demanding more of a say in the organisation’s affairs. The 1970 Stockholm gathering’s decision to back the New South Wales section’s views was blamed by the Victorian section on the strength of their

sought to maintain control over local populations and foreign policy. While London ultimately failed to maintain Egypt and Afghanistan within the imperial sphere, it hung onto Malta and India tightly while extending its influence over the Middle East. For the latter, Houot explains that London and other colonial offices used what she terms a form of ‘expedient imperialism’, demonstrating a lack of clear objectives and policies in order to attain control of the area. In turn, regular changes of alliances and objectives resulted in a growing opposition to British (and

Prelude to decolonisation? The inter-war empire revisited
Martin Thomas

rarely placed empire at the forefront of decisions made in economic or foreign policy. This assertion may jar. After the Great War the sharp decline of the franc, the urgent need to increase export volume, the imminent redistribution of territory under the peace settlement and the powerful tide of nationalist sentiment enhanced parliamentary and public interest in the colonies. The wartime contribution of colonial troops

Imperial ideology in English gender politics
Diane Robinson-Dunn

Feminist challenges The process of defining proper English gender roles in relation to the harem and the position of the Muslim woman had as much to do with domestic gender debates as it did with foreign policy. As a result of increasingly vocal and influential feminist movements, the place that women should occupy in society became a hotly debated and divisive issue in late

As a staunch ally of the United States and its foreign policy, Australia remained involved in the conflict until April 1975, when the war ended. By then, 3,000 Australians had been wounded; 521 had died; and more than 60,000 personnel had been sent to the war. 13 The war created a large number of displaced and homeless children.
