Living with Colonialism

Bureaucracies made domination in its ordinary forms and left a little room for history in the heroic mode. The colonial bureaucracies of the British Empire necessitate the study because they illuminate three major sides of the colonial state, and these are as follows: (1) its mode of operation; (2) its adaptive responses and strategies in the face of wider economic and political forces; and (3) its role in providing territorial and administrative structures for nationalism. In reading this chapter, people can trace the process that gave local recruits progressively more responsible jobs in the colonial regime by examining “Sudanization”in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan. The facts of this process were unique to each theory, but the general contours were the same throughout the British Empire.
