Book Description

A provocative study of the controversial Anglo-American struggle over empire and economic globalization in the mid- to late-nineteenth century. Palen reinterprets Anglo-American imperialism through the global interplay between Victorian free-trade cosmopolitanism and economic nationalism, revealing how imperial expansion and economic integration were mired in political and ideological conflict.
