Summary This study looks at British-African relations between the two World Wars and examines the debates surrounding racism, race relations and citizenship during this period and their implications for the rest of the 20th century. Focusing on West Africa, South Africa and Britain, the author charts the growth of anti-colonial resistance and opposition to racism in the prelude to the post-colonial era. She also offers a sophisticated analysis of black identity and nationalism that cuts across cultural, literary and historical studies.
