The formation of national and imperial identities along racial lines in the mid-nineteenth century is covered by an analysis of the mid-nineteenth century British censuses.

His movements loosely followed the progress of decolonisation, from Zambian independence in 1964 to majority rule in South Africa in 1994. His account illustrates this complicated trajectory of migration, corresponding changes in his perception of his own identity and the resulting sense of not really
