Victorian Visions of Global Order

An insight into the climate of political thought surrounding the most powerful empire in history. This wide-ranging and original study provides an insight into the climate of political thought during the lifespan of what was, at this time, the most powerful empire in history. A distinguished group of contributors explores the way in which thinkers in Britain theorised influential views about empire and international relations, exploring topics such as the evolution of international law, the ways in which the world was notionally divided into the 'civilised' and the 'barbarian', the role of India in shaping visions of civil society, grandiose ideas about a global imperial state, the development of an array of radical critiques of empire, the varieties of liberal imperialism, and the rise and fall of free trade. Together, the chapters form an analysis of political thought in this context, both of the famous (Bentham, Mill, Marx, and Hobson) and of those who, whilst influential at the time, are all but forgotten today.
