Outskirts of Empire: Studies in British Power Projection investigates the substructure of Britains interests in the Near East and beyond during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Essays address themes in British power projection in a geographically wide area encompassing parts of the Ottoman Empire, Morocco and Abyssinia, illuminating interlinking elements of Britains power and presence through commerce, religion, consular activity, expatriates, travel and exploration and technology. Through careful investigation of the interface of these themes the book develops a deeper sense of Britains presence in the Near East and contiguous areas and highlights the network of Britons who were required to sustain that presence.
