Young, Robert J. C. Colonial desire : hybridity in theory, culture and race: Routledge, 1995.

Colonial Desire is a controversial and bracing study of the history of Englishness and ``culture.'' Robert Young argues that the theories advanced today about post-colonialism and ethnicity are disturbingly close to the colonial discourse of the nineteenth century. ``Englishness,'' Young argues, has been less fixed and stable than uncertain, fissured with difference and a desire for otherness.
