Summary
In Finance, Politics and the Dominions, Andrew Dilleyoffers a major new contribution to the history of British imperialism and of the 'British World'. Drawing on a considerable range of archival, press, and other contemporary sources, he uses a comparative approach to highlight the ways in which dependence on London finance shaped political life in Australia and Canada between 1896 and 1914, and shows how these impacts were in turn shaped by the processes of economic development in these settler capitalist societies. Deploying an innovative combination of economic, business, political, and cultural history, his studythrows new light onto debates about gentlemanly capitalism, and the cultural economy of the British world. It offers fresh insights into the history of the City of London, and into Anglo-Dominion relations, and Australian and Canadian politics, and more broadly, insists on the importance of political economy in the history of the British empire.--
