Imperial Leather chronicles the dangerous liaisons between gender, race and class that shaped British imperialism and its bloody dismantling. Spanning the century between Victorian Britain and the current struggle for power in South Africa, the book takes up the complex relationships between race and sexuality, fetishism and money, gender and violence, domesticity and the imperial market, and the gendering of nationalism within the zones of imperial and anti-imperial power.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The author and Routledge are to be congratulated on a big, beautiful book that many students of the history of sexuality will find alluring."
-"Journal of the History of Sexuality
""Imperial Leather is what an academic book ought to be: intelligent, informed, socially committed, engaged, and engaging."
-"Women's Review of Books
""Imperial Leather is a wonderful book."
-"Women's Review of Books
"McClintock's magisterial study...is a daring articulation of the race-class-gender triad."
-"Choice
"Anne McClintock's "Imperial Leather takes a prominent place among a number of recent works...that question the relegation of the imperial enterprise to the back benches of the Victorian sensibility....Ms. McClintock's astute reading of novels, diaries, and advertisements, among other sources, demonstrates how images of domestic life can be incorporated into an ideology of imperial domination."
-"The New York Times Book Review
