  • Institutional Violence and the Law in Apartheid South Africa
    • Abstract: Violence, at first sight, seems an unexplainable phenomenon.1 That may well be what partly defines it, that some of its aspects are ultimately ungraspable, because of its profoundly disruptive character—of the sense of self-being, of narratives, of the boundaries of one’s body, of social structures. But violence is also a productive force, and, to some extent, a reproductive one.2 Studying violence brings to the fore the ethical problems linked to the positionality of the researcher and, especially in postcolonial contexts, the essential intrusiveness of his/her work.3 While leading interviews in South Africa with inmates, warders and former political prisoners, one paradox that bothered me hinged on understanding ...

  • “I Wish I Could See You as Often as I Could See Your Letter”: Imperial
           anxieties and working class family life in the Raj
    • Abstract: The Spring 2013 special issue of the Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History championed family narratives as a way “to radically re-centre our understanding of empire… to think about broad processes or ideas in practice and experience—embodied, individual, tentative, contingent.”1 This article takes up that call to think about the familial experience of class in Victorian India. Working class families have been almost entirely neglected in the historiography of British imperialism, while imperial families are missing from the history of the British working class. Britons of working class origin made up nearly half of the British population of India by 1900, but they figure very little in histories of ... Read More

  • “Vive La France!”: British Caribbean soldiers and interracial
           intimacies on the Western Front
    • Abstract: Writing in the summer of 1919, a British West Indies Regiment (BWIR) veteran fondly recalled the treatment he received in France during the Great War. “The French people look upon colored soldiers as their saviours,” he marveled. “Our appearance in public places was every time the signal for cheers. The people swarmed around us, shaking our hands; the girls gave us their kisses, and at one time an old man knelt down and kissed my feet.” During an excursion to a French cinema, he watched in awe as White moviegoers applauded images of West African tirailleurs at the Battle of Verdun.1 Moved to tears by the “ovation of the crowd,” the BWIR veteran confessed that the interracial camaraderie he witnessed in France ...

  • A “Very Extensive System of Peculation and Jobbing”: The Liberated
           African Department of Sierra Leone, humanitarian governance and the fraud
           inquiry of 1848
    • Abstract: Early on the morning of 4 June 1848, just as breakfast was being served, the Acting-Governor of Sierra Leone, Benjamin Pine, sent two representatives, Mr. Aiken and Mr. Pike, down to the Liberated African Yard to seize and bring back to Government House six of the wooden mess tubs, each containing breakfast for ten adults—in total, the breakfast for sixty of the approximately one thousand individuals recently liberated from slave ships and housed in the Yard at Freetown at that time, pending “disposal” and resettlement. Upon measuring each tub’s contents, the commissioners reported, just as they had suspected following a tip-off from a local merchant, that the quantity of food being provided to the liberated ...

  • Transnational Connections and the Making of Modern Childhood in the
           Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Centuries: A review article
    • Abstract: The 1960 publication Centuries of Childhood by Philippe Ariès propelled childhood history into academia. Ariès’ controversial claim that childhood, as a separate and distinct period of the human lifecycle, did not exist in Europe until the eighteenth century historicised childhood, prompting scholars to recognise for the first time that childhood, like other categories of analysis, is historically, socially and culturally constructed. By so doing, Ariès’ work revealed that childhood history was a crucial arena of social enquiry.1 The study of this biological and social category—one which is liminal, universally experienced, and yet uniquely implicated in matters of sex, gender, race, ethnicity and socio-economic ...

    • Abstract: Of the many changes wrought upon the peoples of Africa, the Americas and Europe by the establishment of the Atlantic as a zone of contact, exchange and transmission, few were as complex and culturally transformative those effected on and by Christianity. Conquistadors and colonists carried their Protestant and Catholic faiths with them from Europe to the Americas, but the exchange was never unidirectional—European Christianity was altered by the experience of the Americas as much as the religious landscape of the Americas was altered by the importation of Christianity. The two books reviewed here explore these mutations, tracing changes in belief and practice as they circulated and recirculated through the Atlantic ... Read More

  • From Colony to Nationhood in Mexico: Laying the foundations, 1560–1840
           by Sean F. McEnroe, and: Imperialism and the Origins of Mexican Culture by
           Colin M. MacLachlan (review)
    • Abstract: Although very different from each other, these two books are united in their study of the ways in which two widely different cultures and civilizations met and melded. Perhaps no better laboratory for this issue exists than the history of the Spanish conquest of Mexico and the amalgamation of civilizations that followed over the three hundred year colonial period from 1519 to 1821. Yet, while the literature on the Spanish conquest of Mexico and the ensuing mixing of cultures is vast, few scholars have suggested the mechanisms by which this blending of civilizations actually occurred, beyond the obvious fact that mestizaje, the mixing of the European and Indigenous peoples, produced a mixed culture. Of the two books ... Read More

  • Mahogany: The costs of luxury in Early America by Jennifer L. Anderson
           (review)
    • Abstract: This book is a fine example of how the history of a single commodity, in this case mahogany, can produce a sweeping historical narrative that spans three centuries and a vast region (the West Indies, Britain and America) to demonstrate the long-range and devastating impact of colonialism on people and the environment. Drawing on an impressive array of British, American and Spanish evidence and a truly interdisciplinary body of secondary sources, Jennifer Anderson has shown how “the British Empire’s appetite for mahogany required a veritable army of people spread out across the Atlantic hemisphere—enslaved Africans, itinerant woodcutters, colonists, and planters in the West Indies and Central America, ship captains ...

  • Pirates, Merchants, Settlers, and Slaves: Colonial America and the
           Indo-Atlantic world by Kevin P. McDonald (review)
    • Abstract: Kevin McDonald’s revised UC Santa Cruz dissertation focuses on the networks that were formed in the late seventeenth century by pirates and traders who sailed halfway around the globe and connected the English colonies in North America, particularly New York, with Madagascar. This book deals with American-based merchants, Atlantic sailors and East African slaves, but rather than treating these groups separately, the author ties their stories together and develops the concept of an Indo-Atlantic World.The chapter of history that McDonald presents is fascinating. After the suppression of buccaneering in the Caribbean in the 1680s several crews left the region and sought new targets, which they eventually found in the ... Read More

  • Paper Sovereigns: Anglo-Native treaties and the law of nations,
           1604–1664 by Jeffrey Glover (review)
    • Abstract: In his insightful analysis of seventeenth-century Anglo-Native relations in North America, Jeffrey Glover casts a wide net over what he understands as treaty-making: Native ceremonies such as dancing and feasting that included English visitors; Anglo-Native marriages, illustrated with the case of Pocahontas and John Rolfe; property deeds transferring land from Native peoples to English colonists; and Anglo-Native trade agreements. All these interactions, Glover shows, can be usefully analyzed as forms of intercultural negotiation and treaty-making. Through a close reading of dozens of letters, reports, pamphlets and petitions composed by English colonists, traders and promoters between 1604 and 1664, Glover argues ... Read More

  • Monsters by Trade: Slave traffickers in modern Spanish literature and
           culture by Lisa Surwillo (review)
    • Abstract: In foregrounding discussions on the slave trade and colonialism within debates about Spanish culture, Monsters by Trade reappraises the constitutive elements of Spanish modernity. It suggests an intriguing premise, spelled out clearly on the first page: “How might we tell the story of Spanish literature if an awareness of coloniality rather than a search for modernity were the privileged terms of analysis?” (1, emphasis original) Surwillo proceeds through two centuries of novels, theater and cultural practice, including the making of indiano heritage sites in contemporary Spain, to uncover—and, more importantly, connect—the importance of the slave trade to ongoing reckonings with Spanish identity. This sweeping ... Read More

  • The Settlers’ Empire: Colonialism and state formation in America’s Old
           Northwest by Bethel Saler (review)
    • Abstract: The US Northwest Ordinance of 1787 has often been seen as a brilliant solution to the need of a postcolonial United States to reconcile the metropolitan priority of regulating expansion with the settler priority of resisting the reproduction of colonial oppression. This it did by allowing for the creation of territories that would eventually enter the union on an “equal footing” with the other states. Bethel Saler’s The Settlers’ Empire provides a careful and wide ranging analysis of the process by which one area within the Northwest Territory became the state of Wisconsin. Unlike earlier historiographies concerned with the Northwest Territory or territorial development elsewhere, Saler is very much aware that the ... Read More

  • Hyderabad, British India, and the World: Muslim networks and minor
           sovereignty, c. 1850–1950 by Eric Beverley (review)
    • Abstract: Eric Beverley’s Hyderabad, British India, and the World: Muslim networks and minor sovereignty, c. 1850–1950 on the Princely State of Hyderabad at the turn of the twentieth century explores the worldly connections of a unique polity: one enclosed by the territories of British India and thus virtually limiting its territorial connections unless carefully mediated and negotiated through the British Empire. Hyderabad was one of several hundred princely states that remained autonomous enjoying varying levels of sovereignty until 1947 when British India gained independence from colonial rule. Precisely what the nature of Hyderabad’s sovereignty was forms the subject of Beverley’s research.Beverley proposes that ... Read More

  • Movement and the Ordering of Freedom: On liberal governances of mobility
           by Hagar Kotef (review)
    • Abstract: The ability to control the movement of people both across territorial borders, and within state territory, is one of the main preoccupations of contemporary states around the world. Within this context, Hagar Kotef’s excellent monograph is an inquiry into the politics of motion. Kotef “seeks to map several modes of configuring movement into different forms of subject-positions, and thus, into the production and justification of different schemas of governance” (2). Her book is, in part, therefore a study of political subjectivity vis-à-vis governance. Her starting point is that despite freedom and movement often being viewed as co-constitutive within liberalism, that does not mean that completely free and chaotic ... Read More

  • The Color of Modernity: São Paulo and the making of race and nation in
           Brazil by Barbara Weinstein (review)
    • Abstract: São Paulo is a state located in the southeast of Brazil with the largest population in the country and the most dynamic economy. However, during the colonial era, São Paulo played a minor role in Portuguese America. The province was largely considered as a small settlement based on subsistence farming. Yet in the late nineteenth century with the boom in coffee production and exportation, the state became one of the major economies of Brazil, leaving behind a past usually associated with economic backwardness.By 1920, as the leading economy of the country, São Paulo, through its elite, challenged the balance in Brazilian politics by posing as the center of Brazilian social and economic progress. Paulista ... Read More

  • The Calling of History: Sir Jadunath Sarkar and his Empire of Truth by
           Dipesh Chakrabarty (review)
    • Abstract: At the end of his new book, The Calling of History, Dipesh Chakrabarty announces an impressive aptitude for the art of necromancy. Entering the corridors of 10 Lake Terrace, Calcutta, he successfully summons the ghost of a former resident—the early twentieth-century historian Sir Jadunath Sarkar (1870–1958)—for a conversation. He finds that Sarkar has been keeping a watchful eye on developments in his home, transformed in 1973 to host the prestigious Centre for the Study of Social Sciences—the very institution where Chakrabarty started his own career in 1974.This conversation between the living and the dead provides Chakrabarty an opportunity to reflect on the key themes of his book, which traces the making of ...

  • The Second British Empire: In the crucible of the twentieth century by
           Timothy Parsons (review)
    • Abstract: Timothy Parsons’ The Second British Empire is a survey history of the British Empire in the twentieth century, written on a global scale. He traces the tension between Britons’ liberal democratic impulses and the autocratic nature of imperialism as the empire gradually declined from an early century peak to its dissolution in the decades after the Second World War. The book is a sequel of sorts to Parsons’ The British Imperial Century: 1815–1914: A world history perspective, also published in Rowman & Littlefield’s Critical Issues in World and International History series. Survey histories are difficult to write. While their authors seek to convey a body of historical knowledge, equally important are the selection ... Read More
