With over 150 titles, published over two decades, Manchester Studies in Imperialism is firmly positioned at the forefront of the study of imperial history.


The Studies in Imperialism series has played a progressive role in reshaping both British and Imperial histories by greatly expanding their respective repertories to explore new and previously neglected subjects and by focusing attention more firmly on the tightly interwoven relationships between them.

Now available as a digital collection for the first time, Manchester Studies in Imperialism offers a rich source of scholarship on propaganda, social control and migration, cultural encounters between the coloniser and colonised, the circulation of power through the production and organisation of colonial knowledge, and the construction of identity both at the heart and on the margins of empire.

Manchester Studies in Imperialism is hosted exclusively on Manchester University Press’s new digital content site, manchesterhive. Click the site logo to find out more.
