New Perspectives on the History of Gender and Empire extends our understanding of the gendered workings of empires, colonialism and imperialism, taking up recent impulses from gender history, new imperial history and global history. The authors apply new theoretical and methodological approaches to historical case studies around the globe in order to redefine the complex relationship between gender and empire. The chapters deal not only with 'typical' colonial empires like the British Empire, but also with those less well-studied, such as the German, Russian, Italian and U.S. empires. They focus on various imperial formations, from colonies in Africa or Asia to settler colonial settings like Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, to imperial peripheries like the Dodecanese or the Black Sea Steppe. The book deals with key themes such as intimacy, sexuality and female education, as well as exploring new aspects like the complex marriage regimes some empires developed or the so-called 'servant debates'. It also presents several ways in which imperial formations were structured by gender and other categories like race, class, caste, sexuality, religion, and citizenship. Offering new reflections on the intimate and personal aspects of gender in imperial activities and relationships, this is an important volume for students and scholars of gender studies and imperial and colonial history.

New Perspectives on the History of Gender and Empire is a compelling contribution to the investigation of the entanglements between gender and imperialism ... The several case studies not only add important insights to scholarship on the specific settings but also shed new light on the centrality of the entanglements between violence, intimacy, sexuality, domesticity, and citizenship in the production of colonial rule. * Affilia: Journal of Women and Social Work * This fascinating and lucidly written collection of essays advances the historical study of gender and empire through a focus on comparative and global approaches and a combination of case studies relating to both overseas and land-based empires. The introduction provides a valuable critical survey of the state of the field, while the individual case studies provide fascinating insights which move beyond earlier binary interpretations of coloniser-colonised dynamics to give insights into the complex intersectionality of affective and power relationships in colonial contexts. * Clare Midgley, Research Professor in History, Sheffield Hallam University, UK * This volume on "gendered imperial formations" brings us truly new research on less-studied settings as well as fresh findings on more established themes. Thoughtfully conceptualized and carefully written, these essays offer information and insights that are simply not available elsewhere. The authors' work perfectly demonstrates the necessity of skillful gender analysis for investigations of colonialism. * Lora Wildenthal, Professor of History, Rice University, USA *
