On an imperial form that includes settler colonialism: On John Darwin’s The Empire Project: The Rise and Fall of the British World-System, 1830–1970, with papers by Antoinette Burton, Alan Lester, Kirsten McKenzie, Duncan Bell and a reply by John Darwin
Abstract: In an age when both the traditional book form and the world that the British Empire made are arguably in crisis, it is remarkable that big books on British imperialism abound. Contributors to this roundtable assess scale and genre as well as content in their discussion of the claims and impact of John Darwin’s tome, The Empire Project. John Darwin’s response is also included.
