The challenge of these questions is to confront the point that imperialism is not something that happened elsewhere – it is a basic aspect of Western industrial modernity. The project of ensuring that histories of imperialism treat ‘both coloniser and colonised . . as gendered subjects, and that attention is paid to the ways in which imperial involvements and interactions were shaped by gender as well as race and class’ is also supported by Midgeley (1998: 14–15).
