9780719086403: British imperialism in Cyprus, 1878-1915: The inconsequential possession (Studies in Imperialism MUP)

This book explores the tensions underlying British imperialism in Cyprus. Much has been written about the British Empire's construction outside Europe, yet there is little on the same themes in Britain's tiny empire in 'Europe'.

This study follows Cyprus' progress from a perceived imperial asset to an expendable backwater by explaining how the Union Jack came to fly over the island and why after thirty-five years the British wanted it lowered. Cyprus' importance was always more imagined than real and was enmeshed within widely held cultural signifiers and myths. British Imperialism in Cyprus fills a gap in the existing literature on the early British period in Cyprus and challenges the received and monolithic view that British imperial policy was based primarily or exclusively on strategic-military considerations.

The combination of archival research, cultural analysis and visual narrative that makes for an enjoyable read for academics and students of Imperial, British and European history.

Andrekos Varnava is Associate Professor in Modern History at Flinders University

Review:


"By far the best book about the early decades of British rule on Cyprus... This book, unlike those, deserves a wide readership and not just among Hellenists."
