The Dissenters Volume III

This chapter focuses on the views of Nonconformists towards foreign policy. Their sympathy for oppressed peoples abroad, clashed with their belief in the need to preserve Britain's imperial power — a conflict which was complicated in the case of some Dissenters by their pacifism. The impact of the Armenian crisis of 1894–6 and the Boer War on the attitudes of Nonconformists is also discussed.
