The article examines the portrayal of the meeting between the Scottish missionary David Livingstone and the Welsh-American journalist Henry Morton Stanley in Stanley's popular travelogue How I Found Livingstone (1872). It analyses Stanley's ambivalent attitude to his own Celtic and Welsh identity and suggests that he also deliberately plays down Livingstone's Scottishness. By using the "peripheral" space of Central Africa to delineate a mode of "Anglo-Saxon" manliness in response to specific political problems, Stanley ultimately gestures towards the strategies and ideologies of a new transnational mode of "Anglo-Saxon" empire.
