Living with Colonialism
University of California Press

As Britain's “colonial moment” in Africa and Asia was established, evaluations of its character and impact changed. Whereas colonial-era accounts highlighted the participation and cooperation of “natives” in government, narratives in the early independence era focused on their resistance. Colonial government employment offered the educated Northern Sudanese a livelihood. The pay was steady, and the jobs held prospects for low-scale promotions and salary increases. Government jobs satisfied basic needs, and yet many of the educated Northern Sudanese had wide grounds for frustrations. They were sensitive to their low rank, exclusion from policy-making decisions, and subordination to British officials.
