POST-IMPERIAL DILEMMAS
New issue of British Politics Review!

The British Empire was always about much more than territorial conquest. A worldwide pursuit of trade and investment motivated imperial expansion. Finance flowed through the veins of the Empire, served by institutions and networks constructed to secure British investors.

In concrete geographical terms, the legacy of the Empire is manifest in Britain’s overseas territories, the topic of this issue of British Politics Review. Minuscule in territory and population, they do not feature very frequently in the news headlines. Yet, bones of contention inherited from history are there for anyone to see.

Contributors include John Christensen, Aaron Donaghy, Federico Merke, Gladys Li, Mercedes Peņalba-Sotirrio and Benedict Rogers.
