The result of the empires made histories to feature conquerors and rebels but which have said little of the European local functionaries. This book will inform its readers about the story of the British people. It will explain the importance of their lives and careers to the operation of the colonial state, the mediation of cultural change, and the elaboration of communal identities. Considering the experiences from the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, the book will make the readers understand the three major historical questions: (1) how did colonialism work as a practice of everyday life?; (2) how did nationalism arise in the banal activities and myriad exchanges that took place on the ground and in print?; and (3) how did the colonial state take shape and evolve into the nation-state, with social consequences? These questions have relevance for postcolonial countries as they pursue their search for identity.
