About the Author

Andrew S. Thompson is Professor of Modern History, University of Exeter


A fitting tribute to Professor MacKenzie's enormous contribution to modern imperial history. In the spirit of MacKenzie's expansive vision, this collection works both as a summation of his career and also as a stimulus to further research.' Saul Dubow, Professor of History, Sussex University Coincident attention to genealogy and innovative potential is the hallmark of this collection. Leonardi and Ward, among others, connect recent cutting-edge scholarship with its still-active ancestor: John M. MacKenzie, the founding editor of the Studies in Imperialism. The theme reappears subtly in Robert Aldrich's study of gender in empire, as he demonstrates that the series carved out a space for sexuality to be taken seriously as a point of historical investigation, and, more pointedly, when Dane Kennedy traces a clear path from early histories of exploration to the environmental histories now in vogue in the academy. In fact, the dual vantage points make this collection much more than a retrospective. While each of the essays elucidates the importance of past contributions to the eld, the assembled authors also propose compelling future paths of inquiry. -- .
