other ethnic groups. In the 1980s it had a reputation for drug trafficking and gang warfare. As so often with inner-city residential areas, different immigrant populations arrived there, later moving out to somewhat more affluent areas, confirming the classic geographical pattern identified by W.I. Thomas and others at the Chicago School of sociology in the 1920s. Before the Jews, who arrived in the early twentieth century, the Irish lived there. From the mid-twentieth century the majority of immigrants were Indian, Pakistani and Caribbean. Adjacent to Cheetham Hill

black Caribbean heritage (2014: 172). While this survey suggests that people of Pakistani and Bangladeshi background show the highest level of concern about intermarriage with a white person, they are no more inclined to reject integration into British society, to reject a British identity or to contemplate violent protest than are other ethno-religious groups (2014: 172–76).While Sobolewska (2010: 43) does identify a greater sense of alienation, exclusion and disaffection among young British-born Muslims than among their immigrant counterparts, this appears to be

Contextualising colonial and post-colonial nursing
Helen Sweet and Sue Hawkins

thinkers were trying to reconcile post-Enlightenment views on the equality of man, justice and ‘Natural Law’, with heightened levels of imperialism throughout Europe and America which had resulted in colonisation of large parts of Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. Simultaneously, Western medicine and nursing were undergoing rapid and revolutionary developments in techniques and technology, together with a more scientific understanding of disease, hygiene and sanitation. The introduction of nursing and medical knowledge and ‘improvements’ in public health in the colonies

area of inner-city Manchester which has historically large numbers of African-Caribbean residents (and a reputation in the 1980s and 1990s particularly for gun crime). Moss Side functions as a referent for violence and risk: 52 Imagining places For me it’s … Sort of like Moss – do you know […] There’s places like round Stockport well not maybe as bad as that (laughing) with the shootings and things but it’s got a reputation that way and there is – and there’s areas that I feel in Stockport that have, for me, have got a reputation that I just wouldn’t – I wouldn

not to send their children to the school in question. Pam, an African-Caribbean midwife whose child went to school in Chorlton but lived in Whalley Range, explained how one school ‘just wouldn’t be on the list’ of possible schools for her children as ‘I went to the predecessor of that school and that was rubbish’. Thus, as this chapter has shown, some parents were able to present the process of applying for a school for their children as relatively straightforward and stress-free due to an acceptance of, or accommodation with, a narrowing of choice. However, they

street vendors only when they were made redundant. I was also moved to meet an older Senegalese street vendor who had been in North America in the early 1990s. He told me that he had a stall at the market on 125th street in Harlem that City Hall tried, and eventually managed, to shut down following organised action on the part of the African American and black migrant vendors from Africa and the Caribbean (Stoller 1992). As Nick Dines has shown, there is a history of anti-racist organisations collaborating with Piazza Garibaldi vendors to approach the administration

shift in the response of British governments to settler demands for local control of areas in those colonies where considerable numbers of British settlers congregated. Undoubtedly India with its riches constituted by far the most important of Britain’s possessions, with the Caribbean Islands perhaps second. Yet by the mid-1830s the sites of White occupation, where the British sought to form permanent

. And the French, strengthened after fiscal reform and through retention of the most lucrative of the slave colonies, St Domingue, began to challenge Britain’s control of the Caribbean slave trade. Finally, nationalist unrest in Ireland served to remind the British state that its oldest and nearest colony continued to be a source of real concern. 32 For many, these events flowed inevitably from the logic
