Shane Doyle

hegemonic. Moreover, doctors were not always blind to the limits of their understanding of indigenous societies. As colonial states matured, and medical officers’ attention moved beyond the needs of European officials and the local servants, soldiers and police who sustained them, so their lack of knowledge of the underlying causes of disease among the wider indigenous population provoked increasing concern

letter from the Asante War (1873–74), six from the reconquest of the Sudan (1896–98) and a mere three from the South African War. More recent writing indicates that there is an abundance of material to sustain more focused research and writing on particular campaigns. 6 Utilising such evidence should not only add to our understanding of these operations but may also provide corroborating testimony

peoples, legal denial of their property rights or attempts to assimilate them out of existence – promoted sustained, and continuing, resistance by Indigenous peoples and troubling ethical, legal and political debates among British and colonial governments, colonial entrepreneurs and local settlers.

tactics and strategies in the face of colonial invasion. The colonisers were similarly split. In 1870 the secret ballot was introduced in settler constituencies, but not in the separate Maori electorates, despite mutterings that the chiefs had too much sway over their people. In 1872 the House of Representatives voted to renew the four separate Maori electorates for a further five years, but turned down a Maori

wrote words that were widely promoted and reported. Moody’s intellectual capacities enabled him to set the racial problems that he encountered in their historical context; but he was also practically minded in actively seeking strategies to deal with racial prejudice. He firmly believed that intellect was God-given; that the mind had to be used to its full extent and particularly for human good; and, as

In consequence, the Negro

halt to the international control of atomic power. 33 Likewise, in the USA, scientists working towards international control of atomic weapons were silenced. The international control movement collapsed; the nuclear arms’ race began. 34 As Denis Smith has put it, the Cold War was off to a frightening start and ‘fear was malignant: henceforth it paralysed thought, sustained ignorance, and bred

work commanding a respect that they would sustain and extend in future years. The IODE was greatly excited by, as well as concerned about, the arrival of immigrants. As part of its mission to produce a Canada that mimicked Britain, the IODE sought British immigrants to populate Canadian space. A framework of powerful racial preferences was constructed as the norm to which all others must assimilate
