A fresh and much needed overview of the fascinating and controversial subject that is history of the missionary, Jeffrey Cox presents a balanced survey which examines Britain as the home base of missions and the impact of the missions themselves.
The British Missionary Enterprise Since 1700 moves away from this partisan approach that characterises so many writers in field and instead views missionaries primarily as institution builders rather than imperialists or heroes of social reform.
Also identified, are the previously ignored issues of missionary rhetoric, the 'feminisation' of missions, and comparisons between British missions and those from other predominantly Protestant countries including the United States.
