Editorial Reviews


"Etherington accepted an unwieldy charge in agreeing to edit this collection, and he deserves great credit for producing a book that is finely nuanced, thoroughly coherent, and accessible. Etherington's introduction provides a flexible and comprehensive framework with which to connect the thirteen essays that follow. It is a brilliant introduction, offering a clear overview of the historiography, as well as concise explanations of the collection's thematic composition and analytical priorities. This book features essays of uniformly high quality that articulate many important parts of the relationship between missions and empire."--Kevin Grant, Hamilton College
