Providence and the Raj: Imperial Mission and Missionary Imperialism
The interconnection between British Christianity and British imperialism in India is a widely acknowledged historical fact. Despite this, there are few books which study this phenomenon. Informed by an essentially Gramscian analysis of colonial discourse, this pioneering book identifies fundamental `religious′ and ideological commonalities that linked British policies in the domestic and imperial arenas and throws fresh light on the construction and collapse of the Raj.
