Review: The Mythology of Imperialism: A Revolutionary Critique of British Literature and Society in

Ideas do not change; contexts do. The expression of an idea may morph into different linguistic and semantic forms, but an idea continues unchanged. Contexts change, words change, but ideas don’t. If our understanding of an idea is shallow, then our application or engagement of that idea will tend to be shallow. If our understanding of an idea has depth, then our application and engagement of that idea will tend to reflect the complexities inherent within the issue. The second publication of The Mythology of Imperialism introduces us to such depth, while illuminating how various academic, social and political forces have hidden the complexities of imperialism and oppression from our public consciousness.
