Book Description

13 Dec 2011 Studies in Imperialism
This unique collection of essays examines the many relationships that existed between Wales and the expanding British overseas empire between 1650 and1830. It is the first book to be published on the subject. In recent years a great deal has been written about Irish and Scottish contributions to the expansion of Britain's overseas empire. In contrast, remarkably little attention has ever been paid to the Welsh, especially in the period before 1850. Properly understanding the relationships that existed between Wales and the empire enables a full assessment to be made of 'British' imperialism as well as the impact that the empire had upon the development of Wales itself. Written by leading specialists in the field, the essays explore economic, social, cultural, political, and religious interactions between Wales and the empire. The geographical coverage is very broad, with examinations of the contributions made by Wales and the Welsh to expansionist processes at work in the Atlantic world, Caribbean, and South Asia. The book will be required reading for academic historians, postgraduates, and undergraduates seeking a starting point for the study of Wales and the empire. It will be indispensable to those interested in the history of Wales, Britain, and the empire, as well as those who wish to compare Welsh imperial experiences with those of the English, Irish, and Scots.

Product Description


"Each of the essays here, including smartly framed analyses by David Ceri Jones on Welsh evangelicals and H.V. Bowen on the relationship between the East India Company and the Welsh economy, contain insights that suggest that further research on Welsh involvement in imperial affairs merits consideration. Indeed, this is the raison d'Aatre of the book, and its skilled contributors suggest the benefits of understanding lesser known aspects of the British Empire." - Peter C. Mancall, University of Southern California, "International Journal of Maritime History Review"
