About this title


An important theme in imperial history is fully explored in this comparative study of racial attitudes within the British Empire. Professor Huttenback focuses on nonwhite immigration and the legislation that was devised to limit it in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, ad Canada during a critical period in the development of the British Empire. He discusses the various stratagems used to keep nonwhites out, paying particular attention to the "Natal formula: as a means of excluding immigrants through literacy tests. He then analyzes the position of nonwhite immigrants who were legitimate residents of the colonies of settlement, and, finally he describes the application of the "Natal formula" and related schemes in Australia and New Zealand, where they reached their highest level of refinement. Throughout the book professor Huttenback takes a hard look at the British imperial philosophy, showing that in every colony white settlers violated at least the spirit of the official policy of racial equality and fair play.
