Learning outcomes

After studying this unit you should have:

  • an awareness of the problems related to evidence for supporting claims on ‘ordinary’ people’s attitudes;

  • an awareness of popular responses to the South African War (1899-1902);

  • an understanding of attitudes to imperialism held by Americans.

Introduction

Historians on both sides of the Atlantic have argued that the empire was not an issue of popular interest in the late nineteenth-century Britain and the United States. This unit examines some of the evidence available to assess the truth of this claim. More broadly, the unit raises questions related to evidence: is it possible to discover what ‘ordinary’ people thought about expansionism?
