Governing Africa: British records from African countries under colonial rule
Governing Africa: British records from African countries under colonial ruleTrial Series
Governing Africa contains primary source documents mostly derived from a series of annual reports and accounts sent to the British Government by its colonial administrations in Africa. The featured collections cover British colonial administrations that reigned during the 19th and 20th centuries, and include content on 13 colonies, from Ghana and Togo to Kenya and Nigeria. Apartheid era South Africa is also covered extensively in the papers of journalist Colin Legum and materials from political parties on both sides of the racial and ideological divide.
Together, these resources provide students and researchers with a comprehensive overview of British rule in Africa, allowing them to trace its rise, decline, and eventual fall, as well as its ongoing influence in post-colonial societies.
