Enemies of empire addresses a conspicuous gap in the current literature on colonial and postcolonial literary, theoretical and historical studies and introduces new perspectives on the qualitative nature of empire. Themes examined include Irish literature, African history, Cold War politics, circuits of knowledge, religious history, Indian hunger-strikes, early 20th-century humanitarianism, globalization and subaltern studies.
