The conclusion assesses the implications of the preceding chapters for the four historiographical issues raised in the introduction. It concludes by suggesting that there were distinct ways in which the British metropole shaped the attitudes and actions of colonial officials, but that these were frequently not ways in which educational and governmental elites wished for. It suggests that the defining feature of colonial officials' mentalities was their search for autonomy, and that their responses to imperial governance and development were shaped in large part by this search.
