Abstract

The paper examines the hill station as a landscape type tied to nineteenth-century discourses of imperialism and climate. They serve as evidence of a belief in racial difference. Because the hill station was seen as a resource to be protected for use by the British ruler, the standards used in colonial settlement planning are framed in these discourses of privilege and difference. Primary attention is given to the high imperial age from 1870 to 1914
