Duncan Bell considers the extraordinary vision of an “Anglo-world” developed in the last decades of the 19th century by the Scots-American magnate Andrew Carnegie. Bell situates Carnegie’s writings of the 1880s and 1890s in the context of what he describes as “social dreaming on both sides of the Atlantic”, both in terms of Utopian literature and in those of more politicised theses current in elite intellectual circles: “democratic war” (HG Wells and William James); “empire peace” (JA Hobson and DG Ritchie), and “racial peace”.
