Reviews

"This impressive book, which is based on extensive archival research, shows how the transformation of racial categories at the turn of the century was a multidirectional process that often generated new meanings. Murphy reveals how multiple imperial histories shaped changing ideas about race and how readers and writers who engaged the trope of the white man's burden exposed contradictory ideas about whiteness as a domestic and transnational racial construct. Shadowing the White Man's Burden is part of an exciting new body of work on race in transnational contexts. It is one of the best accounts we have of the significance of literature in transformations of and contests over race in this period." Shelley Streeby, author of American Sensations: Class, Empire, and the Production of Popular Culture
