Burdens of History In this study of British middle-class feminism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Antoinette Burton explores an important but neglected historical dimension of the relationship between feminism and imperialism.

essential reading for students of imperialism 15 juin 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The first customer review of this book (by a reader in Atlanta) is completely off. It was obviously written by someone with an ax to grind, but it is not representative of Burton's work. Burdens of History is a nuanced and thoughtful examination of the role of British women both in relation to their efforts to secure the vote, but also (for lack of a better word) their "complicity" in the imperial project.
This is not a matter of anachronistically applying 20th c. liberal ideas to a 19th c. imperial context. Only someone who skimmed the book could think this.
This is a wonderful book which has rightfully earned Burton wide-spread respect throughout the field of British imperial history.

Most intriguing, but incomplete.. 19 mars 2007
Par Eric Hobart - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Normally, I start with praise for the book, but I feel that I have to get something stated right out front - the book was not quite what I expected. It was a fantastic book, with great research used to back up the author's thesis, but the name is somewhat misleading - I thought that when the author said "Imperial Culture", she would be referring to culture throughout the British Empire, or at least in several different countries. Unfortunately, she focuses almost exclusively on India and Turkey (which really isn't even a British colony).

After I accepted the fact that the author was going to focus on India & Indian women, I found that I really enjoyed the book. The author's premise is that British feminists impacted Imperial culture through their actions. Her theories are well defended, and use great primary source material (such as contemporary journals and pamphlets, along with written documents from the participants).

Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in British Feminism, Indian women in Victorian & Edwardian era Imperial Britain, or one looking for an understanding of how female suffragettes in Britain really pushed their case for female emancipation.

Effective study 9 février 2010
Par Jacob Glicklich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Burton offers a complex, highly effective look at some of the complexities of imperialism. Not content to explore the traditional subjects of empire, Burton analyzes a wider form in which even feminist movements progressive in some senses built off imperial complicity and disturbing subtext. Recommended reading for those at all engaged with study of imperialism, gender or British identity in the nineteenth century.

The kind of scholarship that makes me sad. 3 septembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is the sort of book that says, "Oh, those naughty people a century ago! They were so unenlightened, compared to us." A hundred years ago, there were these horrible women called "suffragists," you see--sure, they wanted votes for WHITE women, but all the time they had all sorts of horrible, imperialistic stereotypes about people who weren't white! If only they'd had modern academics to keep them in line!
The scholarship here is often as disappointing as the conclusions are predictable. Burton will take an analysis of a single journal and make it do duty for the whole of a movement. Literary-critical types (and I am one myself) shouldn't delude themselves into thinking they're writing history.
This kind of academic book makes me say to myself, "Maybe it's not such a bad thing that academic publishing is dying." Sigh.
