A sparkling new collection on religion and imperialism, covering Ireland and Britain, Australia, Canada, the Cape Colony and New Zealand, Botswana and Madagascar. Bursting with accounts of lively characters and incidents from around the British world, this collection is essential reading for all students of religious and imperial history.
'This book is an extremely welcome addition to the growing literature on the British empire, or empires, and religion. It offers much comment that is new while contributing to established historiographical debates. It is to be hoped that this volume will generate further interest and debate on a significant and too-long neglected dimension to imperial history.' - The Journal of the Ecclesiastical HistoryAutorentext
