“Imperial Intimacies weaves the history of British imperialism together with the history of her family. Carby assembles a sprawling account of how imperialism—a web of social relations, labor markets, and trade networks—conditions private feeling. The resulting narrative is something like an affective history of the British Empire.” —New Yorker
