This concluding chapter remarks on the threatening nature of the transposed “Eastern” space was part of a larger discourse about the presence in the European cities of the poor non-European workers, wandering and therefore suspect “tribes,” prostitutes, and criminals, and how these perceived assaults were responded in kind with emigration to the colonies. Just as consequential as bodily transportation, however, was material transposition, as when Britons sought to re-create an English town in the Indian hills. Entwined in this development was the rhetorical transposition of Europe to India, and of an exoticized India to Europe, which came to assume an authentic cast that continues to shape representations of the subcontinent.
