Militarism, Hunting, Imperialism
The late Victorian and Edwardian officer class viewed hunting and big game hunting in particular, as a sound preparation for imperial warfare. For the imperial officer in the making, the a bloodinga (TM) hunting ritual was a visible a hallmarka (TM) of stirling martial masculinity. Sir Henry Newbolt, the period poet of subaltern self-sacrifice, typically considered hunting as essential for the creation of a a masculine sporting spirita (TM) necessary for the consolidation and extension of the empire. Hunting was seen as a manifestation of Darwinian masculinity that maintained a pre-ordained hierarchical order of superordinate and subordinate breeds.
Militarism, Hunting, Imperialism examines these ideas under the following five sections:
- martial imperialism: the self-sacrificial subaltern
- a bloodinga (TM) the middle class martial male
- the imperial officer, hunting and war
- martial masculinity proclaimed and consolidated
- martial masculinity adapted and adjusted.
This book was published as a special issue of the International Journal of the History of Sport.
