Rooted in a period of vigorous exploration and colonialism, The
Island Race: Englishness, empire and gender in the eighteenth
century is an innovative study of the issues of nation, gender and
identity. Wilson bases her analysis on a wide range of case studies
drawn both from Britain and across the Atlantic and Pacific
Creating a colourful and original colonial landscape, she
considers topics such as:
* the symbolism of Britannia
* the role of women in war.
Wilson shows the far-reaching implications that colonial power
and expansion had upon the English people's sense of self, and
argues that the vaunted singularity of English culture was in fact
constituted by the bodies, practices and exchanges of peoples
across the globe. Theoretically rigorous and highly readable, The
Island Race will become a seminal text for understanding the
pressing issues that it confronts.
