The MacKenzie Moment and Imperial History. Essays in Honour of John M. MacKenzie Edited by Stephanie Barczewski and Martin Farr (Britain and the World Series, Palgrave Macmillan 2019) Cover: ‘This book celebrates the career of the eminent historian of the British Empire, John M. MacKenzie, who pioneered the examination of the impact of the Empire on metropolitan culture.  ...These essays demonstrate MacKenzie’s influence but also interrogate his legacy for the study of imperial history, not only for Britain and the nations of Britain but also in comparative and transnational context.’ This volume emerged from a festschrift conference held in 2016 and contains contributions from seventeen international scholars whose contributions ‘make crystal clear why the interpretational shifts initiated by MacKenzie’s work are of lasting importance’ (Martin Thomas, University of Exeter UK).
