This concluding chapter reviews the different ways of reading the political significance of the spectre during a time when a number of political issues were communicated and reconstituted into other—ghostly—forms. It shows how Dickens, Riddell and Collins explore the way consciousness within a money-based society was created as if it were like money. It then considers the narratives on national and colonial identities that were opened up by studies of the spectral, and shows how to read spectrality. This chapter also discusses fictional spectres and spirit messages.
