Product description


original and intelligent (Times Higher Education Supplement)

[A] vast and vastly interesting book. (Australian Journal of Politics and History)

Replenishing the Earth is the biggest, boldest, most truly global [of the] "British World" histories. Book of the week. (Stephen Howe, The Independent)

This is one of the most important works on the broad processes of modern world history to have appeared for years - arguably since Sir Charles Dilke's pioneering Greater Britain introduced a concept very like Belich's "Anglo-world" to his Victorian contemporaries in 1868 (Bernard Porter, Times Literary Supplement)

Replenishing the Earth possesses grandeur of vision. It is written with great gusto in a vigorous quest for explanations of vital phenomena. It is exhilarating and provocative reading and grapples with central historical questions at a structural level which leaves this reader cheering its sheer bravado. (Eric Richards, Reviews in History)

Original and intelligent...this book offers a novel explanation of the rise of the Anglo-world... Whatever the future holds, their past is compellingly told here. (Donald MacRaild, Times Higher Education Supplement)

A provocative, empirically sound reexamination of the expansion of the English-speaking world in the late 19th century. (CHOICE)

A comprehensive survey of and challenge to the immense historiography on Anglophone settler expansions of the long nineteenth century...Teachers will find Replenishing the Earth a rich and provocative source at all collegiate levels...A goldmine for the particulars of growth and expansion. (World History Bulletin)

Useful not just for scholars comparing settler societies but for everyone working on nineteenth-century North America or impressive contribution both to settler history and to world history. (American Historical Review)

Comprehensive, highly original...and always fascinating account of Greater Britains will to power, with which account scholars perforce will grapple for years to come. (Peter A. Coclanis, Journal of Interdisciplinary History)

A great contribution to large-scale history: constantly sparkling in its style, humorous, and offering profound new insights. A magnificent book. (Jared Diamond, UCLA, Pulitzer-Prize-winning author of the best-sellers Guns, Germs, and Steel and Collapse)

Argued with wit and vigor, this ambitious book makes a provocative, multilayered contribution to comparative and transnational history. (Carl J. Guarneri, Journal of Diplomatic History)
