Empire and Imperial Ambition: Liberty, Englishness and Anti-Imperialism in Late Victorian Britain (repost)

Mira Matikkala, "Empire and Imperial Ambition: Liberty, Englishness and Anti-Imperialism in Late Victorian Britain"
English | 2011-01-18 | ISBN: 1848856091 | 304 pages | PDF | 1,9 MB

The late nineteenth century is generally thought of as a period of fervent imperial enthusiasm in Britain. However, beneath the surface there were currents of discontent. Mira Matikkala here examines modes of thought in Late Victorian Britain that were described as anti-imperialist in the period 1878-1901. In doing so, she clarifies the picture of moral and cultural attitudes in an era which has been too often seen as characterised by monolithic imperial culture. For the first time, this book explores the colourful and fragmentary group of British anti-imperialists collectively and from a comparative perspective; their collaborations as well as the differences in their approaches.

I'm a big World War II buff, and in addition to all of the books I own about the battles, campaigns, weaponry, and general histories of the war, I also own many biographies and autobiographies of people, both famous and unknown, from the era. However, one thing I lacked was a good biography of Stalin. I have a few, but they were written before the Iron Curtain had fallen, and primarily used "western" rather than Soviet sources.

Marangoni (1878), provided a wealth of detailed information on the effects of variations of the potential energy of liquid surfaces and, in particular, flow arising from variations in temperature and surfactant composition. One aspect of this science is seen today to bear on important phenomena associated with the processing of modern materials.
