Chapter four, ‘Racial Difference: Savages, Mutinies and Revolution’ explores the explosive Indian Mutiny of 1857, identifying Dickens’s response as multifaceted. The chapter reads both the co-authored ‘Perils of Certain English Prisoners and Their Treasure in Women, Children, Silver and Jewels’ and A Tale of Two Cities in a context of adventure narratives, expeditions, and racial shows revealing what Octave Mannoni terms a well established colonial complex.
