This page intentionally left blankAll of London exploded on the night of  May , in the biggestWest End party ever seen. The mix of media manipulation, pa-triotism, and class, race, and gender politics that produced the‘‘spontaneous’’ festivities of Mafeking Night begins this analysis ofthe cultural politics of late-Victorian imperialism. Paula M. Krebsexamines ‘‘the last of the gentlemen’s wars’’ – the Boer War of– – and the struggles to maintain an imperialist hegemonyin a twentieth-century world, through the war writings of ArthurConan Doyle, Olive Schreiner, H. Rider Haggard, and RudyardKipling, as well as contemporary journalism, propaganda, andother forms of public discourse. Her feminist analysis of suchmatters as the sexual honor of the British soldier at war, the deathsof thousands of women and children in ‘‘concentration camps,’’and new concepts of race in South Africa marks this book as asignificant contribution to British imperial studies.Paula M. Krebs is Associate Professor of English at WheatonCollege, Massachusetts. She is co-editor of The Feminist TeacherAnthology: Pedagogies and Classroom Strategies () and has publishedarticles in Victorian Studies, History Workshop Journal, and VictorianLiterature and Culture.MMMMM   -   GENDER, RACE, AND THEWRITING OF EMPIRE   -  General editorGillian Beer, University of CambridgeEditorial boardIsobel Armstrong, Birkbeck College, LondonTerry Eagleton, University of OxfordLeonore Davidoff, University of EssexCatherine Gallagher, University of California, BerkeleyD. A. Miller, Columbia UniversityJ. Hillis Miller, University of California, IrvineMary Poovey, New York UniversityElaine Showalter, Princeton UniversityNineteenth-century British literature and culture have been richfields for interdisciplinary studies. Since the turn of the twentiethcentury, scholars and critics have tracked the intersections andtensions between Victorian literature and the visual arts, politics,social organization, economic life, technical innovations, scientificthought – in short, culture in its broadest sense. In recent years,theoretical challenges and historiographical shifts have unsettledthe assumptions of previous scholarly syntheses and called intoquestion the terms of older debates. Whereas the tendency in muchpast literary critical interpretation was to use the metaphor ofculture as ‘‘background,’’ feminist, Foucauldian, and other ana-lyses have employed more dynamic models that raise questions ofpower and of circulation. Such developments have reanimated thefield.This series aims to accommodate and promote the most interest-ing work being undertaken on the frontiers of the field of nine-teenth-century literary studies: work which intersects fruitfully withother fields of study such as history, or literary theory, or the historyof science. Comparative as well as interdisciplinary approaches arewelcomed.A complete list of titles published will be found at the end of thebook.GENDER, RACE, AND THEWRITING OF EMPIREPublic Discourse and the Boer WarPAULA M.
