'... a valuable study of Dickens's relationship to questions of race and empire.'
John Bowen, Professor of Nineteenth-Century Literature, University of York
'Moore's mastery of the Dickens canon (few critics have paid such close attention to Dickens's periodicals, Household Words and All the Year Round) enables her to provide cogent illustrations of his evolving attitude toward empire.'
'[Dickens's] novels continue to matter, and any discussion of his journalism and correspondence that points us to more open and complex readings of the novels is valuable. No other book has brought together such a wide range of texts showing the extent of Dickens's response to empire. Dickens and Empire is a valuable book.' --Clio
