Globalization, Inter-Connectivity, and Anti-Imperialism

Globalization, Inter-Connectivity, and Anti-Imperialism

Leonard Woolf, the Hogarth Press, and Kenya

(p.231) Globalization, Inter-Connectivity, and Anti-Imperialism
Interdisciplinary/Multidisciplinary Woolf

Jeanne Dubino

Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines Leonard Woolf's politics through his work as a publisher, with particular emphasis on his “anti-imperial alliance” with authors and activists Norman Leys and Parmenas Githendu Mockerie as they launched a sustained campaign against British injustices in Kenya. In much of his work, Leonard tirelessly addressed globalization, especially in terms of geopolitics, internationalization, and imperialism. As a co-publisher of the Hogarth Press, he demonstrated his commitment to global studies—or in his case, international relations—by publishing the works of international authors and about international subjects. A related dimension of modernism and globalization is the notion of “inter-cultural connectivity.” Through, especially, the Hogarth Press, both Leonard and Virginia Woolf formed many connections with writers, activists, and thinkers around the world. The rest of the chapter discusses Leonard Woolf's connection with Kenya, focusing on the nature and components of his association with Leys and Mockerie with regard to anti-imperialism.

Keywords:   politics, Leonard Woolf, Norman Leys, Parmenas Githendu Mockerie, Kenya, globalization, imperialism, Hogarth Press, inter-cultural connectivity, anti-imperialism
