About the Author

Antoinette Burton is Professor of History and Professor of Gender and Women's Studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA. She specialises in the history of the British empire, women and gender and world history. Her most recent publications include An ABC of Queen Victoria's Empire (2017), The First Anglo-African Wars: A Reader (2014) and Empires and the Reach of the Global (2012). She is also the co-editor of World Histories from Below (2016) with Tony Ballantyne, and How Empire Shaped Us (2016) with Dane Kennedy.


Each volume could successfully stand alone as a reference work on an era: Antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Age of Enlightenment, the Age of Empire, and the Modern Age ... The introductory essay to each is a valuable resource for comparing traditional political and economic histories with the more critical and cultural works presented in subsequent chapters. Accompanying each volume is a list of illustrations, notes, further reading, and an index ... Overall, students seeking a comparative, interdisciplinary, and compelling account of the spread of Western empires will find much of interest here. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty. * CHOICE *
