Imperialism, Race and Resistancemarks an important new development in the study of British and imperial interwar history.
Focusing on Britain, West Africa and South Africa,Imperialism, Race and Resistancecharts the growth of anti-colonial resistance and opposition to racism in the prelude to the 'post-colonial' era. The complex nature of imperial power in explored, as well as its impact on the lives and struggles of black men and women in Africa and the African diaspora.
Barbara Bush argues that tensions between white dreams of power and black dreams of freedom were seminal in transofrming Britain's relationship with Africa in an era bounded by global war and shaped by ideological conflict.
