This work examines the ways in which European imperialism was facilitated and challenged during the period 1820 to 1920. It adds to current multi-disciplinary debates on the complex cultural, ideological and intellectual bases of European imperial conquests and colonizations by reference to geographical science. The authors examine maps and surveys, exploration and travel, the activities and debates of metropolitan and provincial geographical societies and a range of written and visual representations. The use of geographical knowledge as a tool of imperial propaganda is evaluated, together with its contribution to imperial debates on race, environmental perception and management. The book explores imperial photography, the cartography of decolonization and environmental management and conservation in the British Empire. The work of societies such as the Royal Geographical Society, the Royal Dutch Geographical Society and the Societe de Geographie de Paris is evaluated.
