This chapter discusses discourses of religion, race, gender, and class within missionary literature. It aims to set consideration of constructions of national identity within a framework which recognises the significance of other identities articulated in relation to it. It asks two general questions in analysing the dominant discourses of missionary literature: what were the key themes in this literature and what were the key markers of identity?

Keywords:   religion, race, gender, class, missionary literature, national identity
