Synopsis

The essays collected in Cultivating the Colonies demonstrate how the relationship between colonial power and nature reveals

the nature of power. Each essay explores how colonial governments translated ideas about the management of exotic

nature and foreign people into practice, and how they literally "got their hands dirty" in the business of empire.





The eleven essays include studies of animal husbandry in the Philippines, farming in Indochina, and indigenous medicine in India. They are global in scope, ranging from the Russian North to Mozambique, examining the consequences of colonialism

on nature, including its impact on animals, fisheries, farmlands, medical practices, and even the diets of indigenous

people.





Cultivating the Colonies establishes beyond all possible doubt the importance of the environment as a locus for studying

the power of the colonial state.
