"Insurgent Empire shows how Britain's enslaved and colonial subjects were active agents in their own liberation. Not only that, they shaped British ideas of freedom and emancipation back in the United Kingdom. Priyamvada Gopal examines dissenting politics in Britain and shows that it was influenced by rebellions and resistance among the colonies in the West Indies, East Africa, Egypt, and India. In addition, a pivotal role in fomenting resistance was played by anticolonial campaigners based in London, right at the heart of empire. Much has been written on how colonized peoples took up British and European ideas and turned them against empire when making claims to freedom and self-determination. Insurgent Empire sets the record straight in demonstrating that these people were much more than victims of imperialism or, subsequently, the passive beneficiaries of an enlightened Western conscience - they were insurgents whose legacy today benefits the culture of the nation that once oppressed them"--… (mais)

Can't quite remember what drew me to the book (I may have heard of the author and by extension decided to read her work) and as part of Women's History Month I thought it would be a good read. If you couldn't tell this book is about British colonists and slaves who actively fought against British and how their battles would influence and shape the fight back home for British critics.

It was okay. Not being that familiar with the people, particular time periods or historical context made this a tough read for me. It felt like this was a book that was very much for someone already familiar with the material (at least, more than I am) or was already studying this in the context for a class.

There's a lot of interesting information in here, but overall it was a tough read that might not be for the layperson.

Library borrow was best. ( )
