The White Man's World explores ideas of the white man during the last 100 years of the British Empire. Working back from Enoch Powell's 'Rivers of Blood' speech of 1968, it discusses the racial assumptions that accompanied the founding of colonial Australia, South Africa, and Rhodesia - colonies which were popularly known as white men's countries.
