Anti-imperial Interaction across the Colonial Borderline: Introduction

(p.1) 1 Anti-imperial Interaction across the Colonial Borderline: Introduction
Empire, the National, and the Postcolonial, 1890-1920


Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines the political and cultural contexts, mentalities, and literary textual articulations of some of the anti-imperial and nationalist movements which came into contact with each other at the height of the British Empire. It offers a series of important portraits or case studies of cross-national awareness, or of negotiation between imperial and nationalist ideologies. It also explores the Irish nationalist support for the Boer minority during the Anglo-Boer war (1899-1902). It demonstrates how cross-national cooperation and sympathy between different groups resistant to empire was put on well-publicized international display, and how this developed and reinforced nationalist formations at home in Ireland. It also provides a brief summary of the succeeding chapters.

Keywords:   anti-imperial interaction, British Empire, Ireland, Boer minority, Anglo-Boer war
