While earlier figures in the language debates of the period sought to enforce this Anglocentrism through corporate education schemes or punitive legislation-and Miller has fascinating discussions of Henry Ford and Theodore Roosevelt in this regard-he is centrally concerned with the 'cultural turn' in popular philology which became dominant after many of these more naked attempts to enforce monlingualism had been abandoned.

The imbalance may arise from Burleigh's unadulterated Anglocentrism, which in turn underlies wrathful rejection of the (mostly correct) location by scholars of the strategic center of World War II in the Soviet-German war of 1941-1945--a truth that does not diminish the heroism, sacrifice, and enormous contribution of Western soldiers, sailors, and flyers to the banishment of Nazism from the world.

Just as the reader is not treated to a romance with the emerging power of cultural China in her poetry, one also finds no safe or comfortable refuge in the high culture of Anglocentrism. The effect of the poetry is to create a mood of "linguistic homelessness," a "site of indigestion" as her poetry, like that of other Hong Kong poets and intellectuals, bespeaks the "double impossibility" of identifying with either the colonizer's culture of Western imperialism or the alienating and alienated culture of her cousins to the north.
Indeed, by using French examples to illustrate aspects of the world system, we can move away from the field's Anglocentrism. I hope these reflections and suggestions will bring the world into French History and bring France into the World History classroom.
He has argued extensively in his previous writings that Scotland has a history separate from England's, that Britishness has often been Englishness enlarged, and that academics have been inclined to allow Anglocentrism to swamp their work in the pursuit of a "new British history." He is a harsh critic of attempts at metropolitan dominance, and sees what happens in London as critical in determining the response of Scots to their future.

I realise that this departure from 'anglocentrism' will take time for native English-speakers to adjust to.
While a focus on the influence of Borrow's amateur autoethnography largely supports Esty's hypothesis about an anthropological turn in England in the late 1930s, the eccentric and nuanced nationalism of Borrow's work provides a context for the ambivalence that Esty detects in the anglocentrism of Between the Acts.
Ultimately, Froula seeks to extricate the concept of civilization from its association with England's legacy of empire, reading Woolf's fascination with Richard Hakluyt's Voyages, for example, as evidence of the author's interest in foreign travel rather than a sign of her Anglocentrism. Although Froula acknowledges Woolf's blindness to her own "complicity with imperial domination" (32), this is not something that she retains as a central focus of her study.
