This chapter takes a look at Phillips, who was concerned with twentieth-century Britain and the ways belonging has been made difficult for non-white citizens. It discusses several of Phillips' works, and it traces the origins of the UK's unwelcoming attitude towards blacks entering the country, as well as the related anxieties surrounding national identity.
