Summary

The language of contemporary cultural theory shows remarkable similarities to the patterns of thought which characterized the Victorian's views of race. Far from being marked by a separation from the racialized thinking of the past, Colonial Desire illustrates how we are operating in complicity with historical ways of viewing ``the other,'' both sexually and racially.

Colonial Desire is a controversial and bracing study of the history of Englishness and ``culture.'' Robert Young argues that the theories advanced today about post-colonialism and ethnicity are disturbingly close to the colonial discourse of the nineteenth century. ``Englishness,'' Young argues, has been less fixed and stable than uncertain, fissured with difference and a desire for otherness.
