Not so long ago, the author of a book I was editing on mistreatment/maltreatment of 'the Other' commented that the English are the only post-colonial people not to have had the spotlight on them for naughty behaviour. Perhaps one day someone will do just that.

Thanks for the comment, Chris. Some of the naughty behaviour, especially in India, is well documented. But it is a hard one this. One German I met made the point that comparing the concentration camps with the soviet gulags was not quite accurate. The Gulag was not set up with the explicit purpose of extermination whereas the concentration camps were. It is an interesting point, although victims of the gulags might ask, "Where was the difference in practice?"
