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 ``c
