Abstract

Anti-imperialism was the raw material from which a new, metaphorical geography of connection was forged. This chapter shows how the new anti-war anti-imperialism emerged out of a series of political traditions and locations. The more general contestation of anti-imperialism was evident from the first days of the anti-war struggle. The anti-war movements have been conceived in, advanced through and shaped by a series of strategic locations. To begin to speak of the material practices that stretch discourses is to raise questions about the concrete ways in which anti-imperialisms have been extended and converged in the anti-war movements. Many British Muslims have immediate understandings of imperialism, as migrants and descendents of migrants from former British colonies including Bangladesh and Pakistan. Welsh and Scottish nationalism both have histories of drawing together anti-imperialism and anti-militarism.
