Riassunto: 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.
Review: 'Embodying the freshest current approaches to the social, political, and cultural history of Victorian and Edwardian Britain, this book offers a novel and provocative interpretation of nineteenth-century middle class formation, with specific reference to relationships among evangelical Nonconformity, liberalism/Liberalism, and the British imperial project.'
