This book is an examination of the idea that of ‘character’ as a moral marker within the later nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Its main purpose is to analyze how the ‘character talk’ that helped to shape elite Britons’ sense of themselves was once used presently to convince audiences, both in Britain and within the places they had conquered, that empire may well be morally in addition to materially justified and was once an ideal force for good on the earth. A small group of radical thinkers questioned a number of the arguments of the imperialists but found it difficult to escape entirely from the sense of moral superiority that marked the latter’s language.
