This article argues that historical geography can help us think about globalisation differently, and in more inclusive ways. India is used as an example here as it was the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the British empire, the most strategic and profitable part of its worldwide system of colonialism (see Box 1, below). But India also produced leading politicians and campaigners who argued against empire and for Indian freedom. These Indians were early globalisers and help us rethink the geographies of globalisation.
