Patronage and Politics in the Victorian Empire: The Personal Governance of Sir Arthur Hamilton Gordon (Lord Stanmore)

by Colin Newbury


“This rigorously scholarly volume by a doyen of imperial history, Colin Newbury … ultimately gives us a powerfully persuasive revisionist interpretation … he dissolves three of the key mythologies surrounding Gordon … With almost forensic scholarly analysis, Newbury explodes every one of these ‘myths’ … With this detailed case study, Colin Newbury further establishes his distinctive contribution to imperial history over the course of 50 years.” – Journal of Pacific History
