Webs of Empire: Locating New Zealand’s Colonial Pasts
Breaking open colonisation to reveal tangled cultural and economic networks, Webs of Empire offers new paths into our colonial history. Linking Gore and Chicago, Maori and Asia, India and newspapers, whalers and writing; empire building becomes a spreading web of connected places, people, ideas and trade. These links question narrow, national stories, while broadening perspectives on the past and the legacies of colonialism that persist today. Underpinned by deep archival research, this groundbreaking collection shows why Tony Ballantyne is one of the most influential historians working in New Zealand today.
