Deirdre Coleman examines Romantic initiatives to establish an empire without slaves, one that would also encompass revolutionary sexual, racial, and labor changes. The loss of Britain's transatlantic empire precipitated much debate about the nature of colonization from 1770 to 1800. Combined with the changing impact of colonialism and immigration in England, the growing popularity of the anti-slavery movement prompted many utopian and Romantic responses to colonization.
