Illustrated London News may have been a result of the large number of expatriates that subscribed to the magazine. This meant that there was a significant number of readers anxious about the changes that decolonisation was to bring. The Illustrated London News was also an establishment paper whose readers must have included shareholders with interests in the colonies. We

Inspectors could expect to receive training with other colonial police forces, notably in Kenya or the Sudan. 112 The potential for social disorder was present in every colony at the end of empire, and Aden was no exception.

served on the Indian unofficial delegation to the Indo-British trade talks in 1937–38. These features of his careeer confirm that he was not a typical businessman, but he was one of the major figures in the jute industry in Calcutta.

As an example, Addison mentioned Churchill's statement in 1935 that Britain would defend Egypt from Italian aggression, which caused a storm in the classroom because it offended Egyptian national pride. The implication was that Egypt was a mere colony under British protection. But Addison asserted that British expatriate, salaried officials in the Egyptian government

know that there was a cleavage within the community between a minority of expatriates – the kaisha-ha , or company people – and the vast majority of lower and middle-class residents – the dochaku-ha , or ‘natives’. 21 This division reflected itself in the organisation that structured the community: the Residents’ Association was dominated by the former, while the Federation of Street Unions represented the interests of the latter. Although the small community of expatriates enjoyed privileged access to their consular

was divided, however, the biggest chasm being between sojourners and settlers, a distinction correlating up to a point with the ‘company’ and ‘native’ divides in the Japanese community identified by Christian Henriot in Chapter Nine. British society in Shanghai consisted of an expatriate elite, made up of the managers and mercantile assistants of the big trading houses and the new multinationals, and a larger settler community – the people who called themselves Shanghailanders. Settlers were united economically in their common

stations became a ticklish issue. Over a two-year period in the second half of the 1930s, the Air Ministry corresponded with Imperial and the Treasury about the costs of hiring British coxswains versus local men (expatriate, other European, or native). In question was the risk of hiring crew who might not be trained (some felt they might be untrainable) to handle fast craft in difficult water, and to do

that flight might enable people to meet face-to-face more often, and might therefore be more effective imperial cement than any new constitutional schemes. Amery referred, of course, to personal meetings between expatriates and British Residents. Contact between British and non-British people would not change and would become decreasingly effective imperial glue. If they were shown as lantern slides

This relational process occurs in spite of the power imbalance that is inherent in the colonial situation, because, as this book clearly shows, Dakar was far from being
