Overview

In a 1968 speech on British immigration policy, Enoch Powell insisted that although a black man may be a British citizen, he can never be an Englishman. This book explains why such a claim was possible to advance and impossible to defend. Ian Baucom reveals how "Englishness" emerged against the institutions and experiences of the British Empire, rendering English culture subject to local determinations and global negotiations. In his view, the Empire was less a place where England exerted control than where it lost command of its own identity.

Analyzing imperial crisis zones--including the Indian Mutiny of 1857, the Morant Bay uprising of 1865, the Amritsar massacre of 1919, and the Brixton riots of 1981--Baucom asks if the building of the empire completely refashioned England's narratives of national identity. To answer this question, he draws on a surprising range of sources: Victorian and imperial architectural theory, colonial tourist manuals, lexicographic treatises, domestic and imperial cricket culture, country house fetishism, and the writings of Ruskin, Kipling, Ford Maddox Ford, Forster, Rhys, C.L.R. James, Naipaul, and Rushdie--and representations of urban riot on television, in novels, and in parliamentary sessions. Emphasizing the English preoccupation with place, he discusses some crucial locations of Englishness that replaced the rural sites of Wordsworthian tradition: the Morant Bay courthouse, Bombay's Gothic railway station, the battle grounds of the 1857 uprising in India, colonial cricket fields, and, last but not least, urban riot zones.

Examines places and institutions which housed the disciplinary projects of British imperialism and the imperial destabilizations and re-formations of English identity: Gothic architecture; the Victoria Terminus in Bombay; the Anglo-Indian Mutiny pilgrimage; the cricket field; the country house; and the zone of urban riot. Argues that, over the past century and a half, Englishness has consistently been defined through appeals to the identity-endowing properties of a place, and looks at these places as metaphors for writers struggling to define what it means to be English. Writers discussed include Rudyard Kipling, E.M. Forster, and Salman Rushdie. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
