Religion against the South African War
Greg Cuthbertson

his politics. 32 His attacks on capitalism were uncharacteristic of non-conformist ministers of his generation and his advocacy of collectivism as a better environment for Christian work 33 had little support in free-church circles. His views about war were equally unrepresentative, but his powerful influence within the Baptist denomination has led a prominent scholar to

: the metropole needs to be deconstructed as much as the periphery. Thus the imperial power interacts with a complex of forces within southern Africa – different white and black groups; various political systems, colonial, republican and African; a range of economies, if progressively converging through the operations of large-scale capitalism with its technological, infrastructural

Dakar’s ‘old city’ and beyond
Liora Bigon

, Saskia Sassen’s philosophical account sees a turning point in this historical period, which extends until the interwar years. This period, at the centre of our discussion, is characterised by the creation of a world-scale through the projection of national capitalism onto foreign geographic areas: through accelerated industrialisation, modernisation and underdevelopment; and through the multiplication of

the creation of a colonial space in which unbridled capitalism could flourish – while at the same time projecting a site for the British at play. Much of this discourse noted the transience of this ‘borrowed’ place and time, whether because the Chinese could seize it back at any moment or because 1997 seemed, even in the immediate postwar years, a likely terminal date. Remarkably, even in the 1960s

of the African diaspora. When he left New York for Moscow at the end of 1929, not long after the stock market crash signalled the possible end of capitalism, he was primed for the work ahead. ‘Dear Cyril’, Padmore wrote to a Harlem friend, Cyril Ollivierre, on 16 April 1930 on a ship bound to Africa, ‘Just a few lines that should have been done long ago, but it was not safe

Modern British imperial identity in the 1903 Delhi durbar’s exhibition of Indian art
Julie F. Codell

the exhibition and catalogue – to display and assert knowledge as power and to recuperate durbar costs and India’s debts – disguised imperial domination with a kinder, gentler blend of gentlemanly capitalism with aristocratic patronage. The exhibition became ‘at once the sign and the proof of reality’, to borrow Roland Barthes’s critique of nineteenth-century historical narrative. 154

global economy. Rooted in the links between the City and the landed interest originating in the late seventeenth century, and in the connections between this interest and the political elite of both parliamentarians and the civil service, this culture of ‘gentlemanly capitalism’ had the capacity to change with the transformation of the global economy and with reforms in the

discourses that formed part of the urban signature of settler capitalism. They therefore held a multifaceted mirror to Irish and Scottish experience of colonial urbanism in Australia. As in the case of pastoral runs or on board emigrant ships, a reflexive self-identifying sense of ethnicity appears to have played a part, but only a part, in this experience. Just as in these other ‘imperial spaces’, so too in

, its emphasis on duty and effort (which is evident in the subtitle ‘A Story of Work and Exploration’ and throughout), and for demonstrating clearly and beyond refute the links between capitalism and image-formation. Early in the work, which is dedicated to Leopold and those who helped Stanley, the author asserts: ‘The charge of Quixotism, being directed against my mission, deterred many noble men in

a mistake to attempt to relate developments on the frontier zone so closely to either commodity exchange or the concept of a transition from merchant capitalism to industrial capitalism in the metropolitan powers. This is not to deny that Marxist paradigms can generate revelatory explanations. It is simply to suggest that commodity exchange was not necessarily the most important activity
