This book explores the political co-operations and textual connections which linked anti-colonial, nationalist, and modernist groups and individuals in the British empire. Boehmer significantly questions prevailing postcolonial paradigms of the self-defining nation, syncretism and mimicry, and dismantles still-dominant binary definitions of the colonial relationship.
