--Timothy J. Shannon, Journal of British Studies "Informed by the nuanced analysis of a broad array of primary sources and a productive engagement with secondary source materials, Savages within the Empire is an insightful and well-written book."Cited by: "An excellent example of the new imperial history.

Savages within the Empire admirably blends concern with the nature of colonialism and the importance of human agency with respect for the unpredictable unfolding of histories rooted in the specificity of particular places in particular times."--Andrew Cayton, The International History Review/5(7).

Focusing on the question, 'How did the British who remained in Britain perceive American Indians, and how did these perceptions reflect and affect British culture?', Savages within the Empire explores both how Britons engaged with the peripheries of their Atlantic empire without leaving home, and, equally important, how their forged understanding significantly affected the British.

In its entirety, Savages within the Empire is a very thorough account of the developing image of American Indians in the public consciousness of 18 th century Britain. Bickham tries to cover a wide variety of historical contexts in his work, and also succinctly supports his arguments with examples from his primary sources.
