About the Author

Andrew Porter is Rhodes Professor of Imperial History at King's College, London


"Porter is one of very few writers on the missionary movement who combines a secure grasp of the various dimensions of the imperial context with a recognition that the theological preoccupations of the missionaries and their supporters need to be taken seriously. It will appeal to both specialists and students alike."--Brian Stanley, University of Cambridge
