Imperial Vision: Anti-Colonial Revisions

Patrick Williams


The production of models, narratives or ‘visions’ of the 1930s, as

with any other periodising, involves processes of selection and rejection,

inclusion and exclusion. It is a matter of no small interest that

one of the most significant areas of exclusion from such paradigms

has been the Empire.1 This article points to, but hardly constitutes a

rectification of, that situation. Rather than any attempt at ‘the big picture’,

in its allotted space it offers more in the way of a thumbnail

sketch, but one which aims at something like a symptomatic relevance

in its juxtaposition of two areas of textual production to give a

sense of the ideological and political struggles taking place via the

various envisionings and revisionings of imperialism in this period.
