Dickens and the Children of Empire examines the themes of childhood and empire throughout Dickens' oeuvre. The prestigious group of contributors initiate and extend debates on the subjects of post-colonialism, literature of the child and present childhood as an apt metaphor for the colonized subject in Dickens' work.
