Book Description

3 folding maps, 8vo, orig. cloth. In d/w. With bookplate of John Stafford Reid Byers (1903-1984), who was in the Ministry of Economic Warfare in 1939. A uniquely interesting copy with a wealth of newspaper articles from the 1950s and 60s pasted in at margins (some removed, leaving traces), chronicling the end of the British rule in Kenya, the Kenyan movement toward independence, and providing illuminating accounts on issues such as land ownership, trade, race and national identity, and the growing influence of the Soviet Union and the United States. New and revised edition. With an introduction by Lord Lugard. First published in 1944, this book takes the form of a debate between journalist and author, Elspeth Huxley (1907-1997) and writer on African affairs, Margery Perham (1895-1982). Huxley argued for a constitution giving more power, especially over matters concerning Africans, to the white settlers, who were familiar with the conditions of the country, and Perham argued for the retention of power by the Colonial Office. Huxley supported attempts to develop multiracial parties, and made contact with African leaders. Conservative settlers regarded her as dangerously radical, while to the British left she was an old-fashioned colonialist. (ODNB) [44551]
