  • Not Just a "Place for the Smoking of Opium": The Indian opium den and
           imperial anxieties in the 1890s
    • Abstract: In 1893 J.J.S. Driberg, the excise commissioner of the province of Assam in British-ruled India, was questioned about the existence of opium dens in his province by the government-appointed Royal Commission on Opium. Driberg denied that any such dens existed, stating: "What I understand by an opium den is a place where all kinds of abominations are allowed, and there are certainly none such in Assam."1 When it was pointed out to him that in fact shops where opium was consumed on the premises did exist in Assam, Driberg replied, "I do not call them opium dens: I call them places for the smoking of opium."2Driberg's response suggests that in late nineteenth century colonial India, an opium den was not simply "a place ...

  • Educating Emotions in Natal and Western Australia, 1854–65
    • Abstract: In Natal, South Africa, in 1856, Anglican Bishop John William Colenso opened the Ekukhanyeni (Place of Light) Institution for the education of sons of chiefs. As the first intake of nineteen scholars arrived at the school in Bishopstowe, near Pietermaritzburg, their mothers refused to leave Ekukhanyeni, sitting on the hills around the school, weeping for the loss of their children.1 Focusing on Ekukhanyeni, and Anne Camfield's school in Albany, Western Australia, this article argues that schools acted as important "emotional frontiers" in colonial contexts.2 Examining colonial education, uniquely positioned as it was at the interface between domestic worlds and broader imperial projects and ideas, provides an ...

  • Shades of the Savage in Colonial New Zealand
    • Abstract: In the lexicon of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century colonial encounters in New Zealand, the word "savage" featured frequently. However, references to the usages of "savage" in most of the historiography covering this period are generally limited to reiterations of its pejorative nature when applied to Maori in the colonial era, along with the obligatory nod to Rousseau—in the case of the "noble savage"—as the supposed progenitor of that concept.1However, there was never a single archetype of the "savage" when applied to New Zealand's Indigenous Maori population. While the word was certainly used (although not always intentionally) in a disparaging way, its significance in terms of how Europeans in the colonial ... Read More

  • American Cows in Antarctica: Richard Byrd's polar dairy as symbolic
           settler colonialism
    • Abstract: In May 1935, the men of Richard E. Byrd's Second Antarctic Expedition arrived at Quantico, Virginia, aboard the S.S. Jacob Ruppert. They were returning from a stay of more than a year in the south polar regions at the base they called "Little America," dug into the Ross Ice Shelf. The men, however, did not represent the full complement of the expedition: accompanying them back from the far south was an exotic menagerie of animals. In addition to a large number of husky dogs—familiar visitors to the south polar regions—the "floating zoo" included a galvanised iron swimming pool full of Antarctic penguins; a cage of "tropical love birds"; iguanas from the Galapagos; and two dairy cows along with a young bull.1 The ...

  • Zoom In, Zoom Out, Change Lens: New directions in the historiography of
           decolonisation
    • Abstract: Historical research on decolonisation has long been plagued by a particular problem of scale. Broad syntheses and overarching conceptual frameworks are desirable, it is generally agreed, as long as they do not obscure local specificities. The problem is that those historians working on the macro scale are considered to be writing histories of decolonisation (and to be well-placed to comment on its historiography), while those carrying out research on the local specificities are considered to be writing, say, a history of mid-twentieth-century Buganda. The former can choose to incorporate the latter, but the latter can only choose whether to enter into dialogue with the grander narratives—which may or may not take ... Read More

  • Negotiating Space in the Spanish Empire: A review essay
    • Abstract: How did the Spanish monarchs rule the world's most expansive early modern empire without ever setting foot in its most important overseas territories' This question is at the heart of understanding the longevity and reach of the Spanish imperial enterprise, both in Europe and abroad. In 2004, Alejandro Cañeque's The King's Living Image proposed a convincing approach to the problem by arguing that the ritualistic and performative aspects of Spanish political culture, especially their focus on the viceroy as an overseas stand-in for the king, sustained a sense of popular unity, group identity and political allegiance that embodied a "language of power that everybody understood."1 Cañeque's work remains a definitive ...

  • The Death of Aztec Tenochtitlan, the Life of Mexico City by Barbara E.
           Mundy (review)
    • Abstract: Visit Mexico City and you will eventually arrive in the Zócalo, the enormous plaza at the city's historical center. Prominent buildings reinforce the political and religious power of the city over the last six hundred years. Here, the Templo Mayor of Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec Empire, is exposed as a foundation of Mexico City, steps away from the Catedral Metropolitano and the Palacio Nacional. However, when you step outside of this historical enclave and are confronted by the overwhelming size of Mexico City, a narrative of conquest and replacement—political, religious and cultural—is hard to avoid.In The Death of Aztec Tenochtitlan, the Life of Mexico City, Barbara Mundy carefully outlines an ...

  • Global Indios: The Indigenous struggle for justice in sixteenth-century
           Spain by Nancy E. van Deusen (review)
    • Abstract: Nancy van Deusen's Global Indios: The Indigenous struggle for justice in sixteenth-century Spain sheds light on a little-discussed form of slavery that emerged as a result of European expansion in the New World—that of Indigenous Americans—and on a site of their enslavement that is even less frequently studied, Spain. Using judicial and other archival records, van Deusen reconstructs not only the local milieus of Indigenous slaves in Spanish villages but also the transimperial, global contexts through which they moved and in which their identities as "indios" and as slaves were imagined, claimed, and contested.The story of the prohibition of Indigenous slavery usually centers on the Dominican friar Bartolomé de Las ...

  • Christian Imperialism: Converting the world in the early American republic
           by Emily Conroy-Krutz (review)
    • Abstract: Although the study of "American history in global perspective" or "the US in the world" was initiated mainly by scholars of the twentieth century, historians working on the earlier periods have not lagged behind. In 2006, a "Forum" entitled "Beyond the Atlantic" in the William and Mary Quarterly, attended by Alison Games, Philip J. Stern, Paul W. Mapp, Peter A. Coclanis, and Julie Sievers, launched the collective effort to globalize colonial and Revolutionary America, which was later embodied in such works as David Armitage's The Declaration of Independence: A global history (2007), George Athan Billias's American Constitutionalism Heard Round the World, 1776–1989: A global perspective (2009), Caroline Frank's ...

  • California Mission Landscapes: Race, memory, and the politics of heritage
           by Elizabeth Kryder-Reid (review)
    • Abstract: In this insightful book, Kryder-Reid shines a spotlight on one of North America's most enduring colonial myths: the idyllic missions of Alta California. Founded more than two centuries ago as the vanguard of the Spanish Empire among California's coastal hunter-gatherer-fisher peoples, the missions have since been transformed into symbols of a romanticized European past. And as California Mission Landscapes convincingly demonstrates, that mythical past today serves to support American settler colonialism in the region. The book centers on how mission landscapes, and particularly gardens, reinforce the historically inaccurate notion that "the Spanish frontier in Alta California had been vacant and settled by ...

  • Families in War And Peace: Chile from colony to nation by Sarah C.
           Chambers (review)
    • Abstract: Since the 1980s familial networks and gender have been growing as a way of interpreting history in Latin America. Numerous studies have demonstrated how family bonds among elite Creole were later exploited in the struggle to separate from Spain. This was particularly visible in Chile, where the colonial economy had been held up by a kinship pattern of marriages between Chilean-born daughters and Spanish immigrants. Mary Lowenthal Felstiner's work on kinship politics and family metaphors was the first to show how family and politics were entwined during the shift to Independence in Chile, and how language connected to family and politics became a tool to unify elite families in their desire to break away from the ...

  • The Colonial Kitchen: Australia 1788–1901 by Charmaine O'Brien.
           Lanham (review)
    • Abstract: The Colonial Kitchen is a meticulously researched study on the food history of colonial Australia. Each page is a pleasure to read, rich in detail, and written in an engaging manner. The author analyses a trove of primary sources via colonial cookbooks, diaries, personal accounts, newspapers, magazines and journals. The Colonial Kitchen also draws on an impressive range of literature in food history/studies, colonial history, Australian history and cultural history. The gist of O'Brien's book is to challenge the generally accepted view that the British ate extremely bad food in the early years of settlement, sticking to mainly Anglo-Celtic insipid meals. For example, John Newton in The Oldest Foods on Earth: A ... Read More

  • New Delhi: The last imperial city by David A. Johnson (review)
    • Abstract: A great deal of interesting archival material and some new historical contextualisations are brought to light in this study of the building of New Delhi (1911–ca. 1931) as capital of the British Raj. The book is at its best when addressing the broader political geographical context (the reformulation of provinces after 1911 and Delhi's position within ongoing processes of devolution), the vicious debate over the financial logic behind the capital's funding, and the mechanisms through which land was acquired upon which to build the city. But this material is thwarted by three faults that hinder the development of the analysis. The first is theoretical, the second is historiographical and the third is political: the ... Read More

  • The British Empire and the Hajj, 1865–1956 by John Slight (review)
    • Abstract: In the opening pages of The British Empire and the Hajj, John Slight argues for the "conceptualization of a British Muslim empire" (1). Noting the prevalence among British and Muslim officials and intellectuals during the high age of imperialism of emphasis on the demographic weight of imperial Britain's Muslim population, Slight shows that such men concluded that British and Muslim power and interests had become inseparable; the British Empire was, in the words of David Samuel Margoliouth, "the greatest Moslem power in the world" (1). As Slight proceeds to show, British engagement with the Hajj represented the most explicit and formal example of this development. While Muslim subjects from Nigeria to Malaya ... Read More

  • The Great War and the Middle East: A Strategic Study by Rob Johnson
           (review)
    • Abstract: The Middle East remains a deeply misunderstood part of the history of the First World War. For some, such as the Islamic State, the war in the Middle East was little more than a smokescreen to allow the West to subjugate Muslim peoples and to take control of the region's vast natural resource wealth. Diplomatic negotiations like those held by Sir Mark Sykes and François Georges-Picot, as the Islamic State and others have claimed, created illegitimate borders: borders, such as the crossing between Iraq and Syria, that the Islamic State bulldozed nearly three years ago in a symbolic rejection of the war's long-term legacy. Others, particularly in the Arab world, have looked to the Balfour Declaration as surefire ... Read More

  • Extraterritorial Dreams: European citizenship, Sephardi Jews and the
           Ottoman twentieth century by Sarah Abrevaya Stein (review)
    • Abstract: Extraterritorial Dreams explores the convoluted legal history of European protégé status and its consequences for Ottoman Jews and their descendants in the waning empire, and in twentieth-century Europe and its overseas colonies and protectorates, with particular attention to the interwar and wartime periods. Given its relative neglect by scholars of Jewish, colonial and legal studies, this coveted patent of protection merits some prefatory remarks.Protégé status was a form of extraterritorial European citizenship granted to Ottoman subjects, most of whom had never set foot in the metropoles of the world's second smallest continent. However, this form of naturalization originated not in Europe, but in the Ottoman ... Read More

  • Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad (review)
    • Abstract: The history of the critical reception of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness has transformed the text in a way that recalls one of its oft-quoted passages. For the young Marlow, the map of Africa is "a blank space of delightful mystery—a white patch for a boy to dream gloriously over." Exploration and conquest spell the loss of this symbolic innocence and that blank space becomes "a place of darkness" (8). The proliferation of analysis and commentary on the novella since its original 1899 publication offers a reenactment of this process. Chinua Achebe's famous 1975 denunciation of its author contributed much to the fact that any reading is always a rereading of Conrad's text through the prism of its racial attitudes. ... Read More

  • Empire's Twin: U.S. anti-imperialism from the founding era to the age of
           terrorism ed. by Ian Tyrell and Jay Sexton (review)
    • Abstract: Much ink has been spilled recently over the imperial history of the United States. Empire's Twin, in contrast, visits the neglected tradition of US anti-imperialism. To be sure, historians have studied anti-imperialism in the United States, but they tend to focus on a few key moments. By charting US anti-imperialism from the American Revolution to the present, the twelve essays in Empire's Twin neatly illuminate the strengths and diversities of this tradition. Above all, the book expands on William Appleman Williams' concept of "imperial anticolonialism" (1959) to reveal the paradoxical ways that opposition to US imperialism could wind up buttressing the agenda of the colossus.In an engaging introduction, the ...
