(p.137) Conclusion: The Colony and the Nation
Living with Colonialism
University of California Press

In this chapter, the author makes conclusions for some unanswered questions in relation to colonialism, and these are as follows: (1) did the colonial system depend on a wide participatory base?; (2) were petty employees a part of the colonial system as the Britons ruled it?; (3) were the petty employees in colonial service often highly educated and literate men, who left records that make their lives and careers recoverable?; (4) were petty colonial employees early nationalist who called forth a nation in their own cultural image?; (5) were the conditions of colonial employment conductive to the creation and growth of nationalism?; (6) were the bureaucrat-nationalists heirs to political power?; (7) did nationalist politicians work to engineer nationalism by making their elite ideology more popular, albeit often lacking the resources to impose their vision successfully?; (8) did some of the features that benefited the colonial state shuffle the nation state that followed?; and (9) did colonialism create transformative and sharp inequalities in social and regional power?
