Empires in the Mind considers the spread of British ideas and beliefs around the globe, and the reciprocal influence of the wider imperial world on Britain’s own knowledge and understanding. It looks first at the spread of English, through the processes of migration and government action, and at its consequences. The impact of empire on the development of non-European languages and English-language literature is also examined. The British empire was a great educator, through the contributions to scholarship of learned societies, the training of administrators, and the enormous numbers of schools and universities for the colonial populations. Religion too was central to the colonial encounter, witnessed in the growth of colonial settler churches, missionary societies, and the spread of Christianity among non-European populations. All of these, together with the media - newspapers, periodicals, broadcasting by radio or television, and films - were instrumental in developing images of the colonial world, of races and nations, still of immense importance in today’s affairs.
