Very interesting article. I have just read a book connected with prostitution in the British empire (The Prostitutes of Serruya's Lane and other Hidden Gibraltarian Histories) and it touched on some of the ideas in your article. I feel so much more needs to be written on the topic in question!


For a more interesting almost-contemporary (with us) view, try JG Farrell's Siege of Krishnapur (confused colonialists and a heroine of questionable reputation who does not easily integrate with either the conquerors or the conquered). BTW are you aware of Fantastic on Dracula and secretarial work!(
