The Harem, Slavery and British Imperial Culture: Anglo-Muslim Relations in the Late Nineteenth Century

Framsida
Manchester University Press, 30 apr. 2006 - 225 sidor
This book focuses on British efforts to suppress the traffic in female slaves destined for Egyptian harems during the late-nineteenth century. It considers this campaign in relation to gender debates in England, and examines the ways in which the assumptions and dominant imperialist discourses of these abolitionists were challenged by the newly-established Muslim communities in England, as well as by English people who converted to or were sympathetic with Islam.
