520    A major contribution to the cultural and literary history 
       of the Victorian age, Rule of Darkness maps the complex 
       relationship between Victorian literary forms, genres, and
       theories and imperialist, racist ideology. Critics and 
       cultural historians have usually regarded the Empire as 
       being of marginal importance to early and mid-Victorian 
       writers. Patrick Brantlinger asserts that the Empire was 
       central to British culture as a source of ideological and 
       artistic energy, both supported by and lending support to 
       widespread belief in racial superiority, the need to 
       transform "savagery" into "civilization," and the urgency 
       of promoting emigration.Rule of Darkness brings together 
       material from public records, memoirs, popular culture, 
       and canonical literature. Brantlinger explores the 
       influence of the novels of Captain Frederick Marryat, 
       pioneer of British adolescent adventure fiction, and shows
       the importance of William Makepeace Thackeray's experience
       of India to his novels. He treats a number of Victorian 
       best sellers previously ignored by literary historians, 
       including the Anglo-Indian writer Philip Meadows Taylor's 
       Confessions of a Thug and Seeta. Brantlinger situates 
       explorers' narratives and travelogues by such famous 
       author-adventurers as David Livingstone and Sir Richard 
       Burton in relation to other forms of Victorian and 
       Edwardian prose. Through readings of works by Arthur Conan
       Doyle, Joseph Conrad, H. Rider Haggard, Rudyard Kipling, 
       John Hobson, and many others, he considers representations
       of Africa, India, and other non-British parts of the world
       in both fiction and nonfiction.The most comprehensive 
       study yet of literature and imperialism in the early and 
       mid-Victorian years, Rule of Darkness offers, in addition,
       a revisionary interpretation of imperialism as a 
       significant factor in later British cultural history, from
       the 1880s to World War I. It is essential reading for 
       anyone concerned with Victorian culture and society and, 
       more generally, with the relationship between Victorian 
       writers and imperialism, 'and between racist ideology and 
       patterns of domination in modern history.
