" her excellent book [is] essential introductory reading" - THES February 2007 "Barbara Bush has taken up a remarkable challenge. Through significant case studies, she has produced a strikingly original and formidably wide-ranging examination of the conceptual and theoretical approaches which help us to understand the forms of imperial authority that have shaped our world. The cumulative effect is indeed impressive, and the book will be invaluable to all those who wish to understand globalization and the power relationships which underlie it." "Professor John MacKenzie, Professor Emeritus of Imperial History, Lancaster University" "A very accomplished and welcome initiative...it can be recommended to students as perhaps the best among numerous recent, partly competing texts." "Stephen Howe University of Bristol" "This book's combination of comparativism with case studies, framed by an interdisciplinary approach, will make it essential introductory reading for undergraduates and postgraduates in history and literature for some time to come." " Javed Majeed, Senior Lecturer, University of London"
