Orientalism and Race

Paperback edition released 18/12/2001

by T. Ballantyne

Part of the Cambridge Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies Series

Orientalism and Race Synopsis

This study traces the emergence and dissemination of Aryanism within the British Empire. The idea of an Aryan race became an important feature of imperial culture in the nineteenth century, feeding into debates in Britain, Ireland, India, and the Pacific. The global reach of the Aryan idea reflected the complex networks that enabled the global reach of British Imperialism. Tony Ballantyne charts the shifting meanings of Aryanism within these 'webs' of Empire.
