Riassunto: This book explores the missionary movement's influence on the British public's perceptions of the Empire from the late eighteenth century to its fragmentation after the First World War. The foreign missionary endeavor was one of the most influential channels through which nineteenth-century Britain encountered the colonies, and it was implicated in some of the most important developments in the social history of nineteenth-century Britain; the popularization of organized religion, the emergence of a language of class, and British liberalism's rise and fall. The author shows how the missionary movement's audience in Britain was inundated with propaganda designed to mobilize support for missionary operations abroad, propaganda in which the imperial context and colonized targets of missionary operations figured prominently. The author departs from the cultural thrust of recent studies of imperialism's popularization and pays attention to the local social contexts in which missionary propaganda was effective.
Sinossi: This book explores the missionary movement s influence on popular perceptions of empire and race in nineteenth-century England. The foreign missionary endeavor was one of the most influential of the channels through which nineteenth-century Britons encountered the colonies, and because of their ties to organized religion, foreign missionary societies enjoyed more regular access to a popular audience than any other colonial lobby. Focusing on the influential denominational case of English Congregationalism, this study shows how the missionary movement s audience in Britain was inundated with propaganda designed to mobilize financial and political support for missionary operations abroad, propaganda in which the imperial context and colonized targets of missionary operations figured prominently.
