in the history of political thought between the post-First World War emergence of a form of ‘sovereignist’ Québécois nationalism and the political underpinnings of the Quiet Revolution movement of the 1960s.

. Chapters Three , Four and Five examine the place of political thought, including humanitarian ideals, in tying together the cultural British world.

It offers a perspective on these phenomena from the vantage point of a minority, diasporic South Asian population in the Indian Ocean city of Durban in South Africa’s most Anglophone province. 8 It juxtaposes the varying Indian

religious, scientific and political thought drew from Irish institutions, methods and personnel, and how an awareness of these processes can be used to inform our understanding of the extent to which ‘Britishness’ was influenced by ‘Irishness’, and how British imperial culture was suffused with distinctly ‘Irish’ elements. 14 Moreover, the examples in this chapter serve to demonstrate how nineteenth

discourse on the subject from those who served in both theatres and sought to reconcile the competing agendas of both camps. Just as political discourse between proponents of competing philosophies generated a debate that helped transform political thought, so it was in military discourse, where competing perspectives helped fuel debate and innovative thinking about war. This manifested in several ways, but of interest here is the evolving way in which military personnel conceptualised the geography and environment in which they were to fight. In the thirty years between

Prayers volumes that consider the particular acts of special worship. These volumes contain comments and some details on special worship in the colonies, particularly for those instances when the inhabitants of the empire observed special acts of worship that had previously been ordered in Britain. 5 There is also a rich literature on special days of worship in colonial America; indeed, scholars regard the sermons delivered on days of fasting and thanksgiving as foundational for the development of American political thought. 6
