of Wales was in his interactions with the child prince who replaced the troublesome gaekwad, Albert Edward could never escape the perception of the Indian press that British rule was fundamentally illiberal.

Britishness, respectability, and imperial citizenship
Charles V. Reed

about British inaction to live up to the promises of the liberal empire as violent and illiberal action. As a transitional period, the late nineteenth-century empire was a dynamic and interconnected political space where a modern, global politics of respectability and imperial citizenship was made.

Race and the migrant self
Satadru Sen

. These have to do with his observers’ investment in his migrant status, i.e., their determination to affix the nature of his English self. When Ranjitsinhji – the England cricketer and the Indian who had triumphed over illiberal ideas – became the ruler of Nawanagar, there was an understandable anticipation that he would initiate an open and even representative regime in which the local middle class and business communities, including the groups John McLeod has characterized broadly as “the politicians,” 306 would have a

. For all his illiberal appearance, Templer was in fact committed to political advance and police reform. Moreover, his arrival in Malaya early in 1952 coincided with the replacement of Gray by Colonel Arthur Young. Indeed, in stressing Young’s shock at finding ‘what he called a “Police State”’, 24 Purcell weakened his attack upon Templer, for Young was commenting upon the situation which the new High

Police, people and social control in Cape Town
Bill Nasson

India, for example, the police were customarily deployed in a more forceful and distressingly illiberal ‘political’ way. 22 Something of this quite beguiling order seems to have held good: exactly how much, and under what kind of durable local and popular conditions, is a large and intriguing historical question. None of this is to say that those who guarded Cape Town’s lingering liberal capitalist

Macmillan was first to draw attention to the fundamentally illiberal nature of both the frontier and the Great Trek, but it was Eric Walker, in 1930, who attempted, far more profoundly than Fouché, to apply Turner’s thesis to the South African frontier. The result was highly original. 10 What Walker
