Press, 2011). 2 As ex-British Prime Minister Tony Blair made clear in his Chicago speech of 1999, intervention in Kosovo was as much about sustaining the global interdependence upon which Britain’s national economic interest relied as it was about human rights abuses perpetrated by Milosevic’s regime: ‘We are all internationalists now

In Sri Lanka, the non-interference, indeed interdependence of government and missionary societies, was greeted by Protestant missionary societies. At the Liverpool conference on mission, the delegates had heartily cheered at the statement that in the government schools in Ceylon, the Bible was introduced from the beginning (of British rule). 144 Using common missionary hyperbole, the Rev. J. Walton

, riding and games’ playing were sanctioned and encouraged by their spouses. Anglo-Indian women’s involvement in sports in the Indian empire – in particular, their aptitude for hunting and shooting – reveals the interdependence and interaction of the social construction of gender and the dictates of British imperialism. However, Anglo-Indian women’s use of firearms

American trade was with the British Empire. 41 British-controlled submarine telegraph cables, steamship routes, and colonial outposts conditioned the form and extent of the United States’ overseas expansion. In the Atlantic, meanwhile, the United States and Britain had settled into a mutually beneficial interdependence. By the eve of the American Civil War, Atlantic economic interdependence had reached, in the description of Jim Potter, ‘a closer approximation to a North Atlantic free-trade area than has occurred at any

-colonial societies, mobilities are key to the ‘subtle and never-quite-finished cultural processes of settler formation: of making and remaking landscapes, of imagining national spaces and the links between them, and of forging the subjectivities of people who dwell in and pass through those spaces’. 11 In exploring the practice and representation of Walter’s movements around East Africa, and how he made sense of his relationships with the East African colonies, their peoples, landscapes and, of course, their climates, the chapter sheds light on the interdependence of different

argued, was appropriate to simpler societies, but the extraordinary complexity introduced by empire and global commerce made a more flexible sense of equity imperative. 77 Burke himself arguably showed more contempt for legal forms in his closing speech than even his theoretical defense of flexibility in an impeachment trial would warrant. But this does not detract from the power of his legal imagination and the fruitfulness of the vision of law he developed over the course of the trial. Burke insisted on the interdependence of our conceptions of law and of moral

the vital interdependence of men’. 35 It represented an objectified and impersonal measure of value, constituted by alienation from the products of one's labour; work for money was abstract, disinterested work, performed by commodified bodies and producing congealed value that could be appropriated. Through a monetary structure the world was transformed into one of objects, of commodities, in a universalising language of value. And the subject, then, became an individual finding their way among these alienated objects, working for money to purchase commodities in

hire scheme to encourage crop rotation in Dominica. 107 Such schemes celebrated the particular experiences of the WI as a rural institution rather than prioritising Britain's national expertise as an imperial power. In the 1970s, similar principles of people-to-people action would align with an increasingly politicised conception of global interdependence, informing calls for structural change and global economic reform. 108 During the first five years of the FFHC, however, they rarely moved beyond more shallow forms of empathetic but apolitical

Connecting economies of human and monetary capital

facilitating completion of the sojourning cycle. In a febrile climate of interdependence and competition sojourners worked together in new ways. Free traders often formed the pivotal link in these arrangements. The career of George Graham, a Bengal-based free mariner at the centre of a kin-based micro-network with three other brothers in Asia from the 1750s to the early 1800s, typifies this connective function. The eclectic, experimental and transnational nature of their networking illustrates what was required to operate successfully in the East Indies. George and his
