Overview

This is the illuminating account of the life of an education officer in Northern Rhodesia during the period leading up to independence. T.E. Dorman worked mainly as an inspector of Schools and travelled the whole country, from the copperbelt to the remote northern areas. His work in the development of education proved challenging in a time of rapid political change, and here he explores the good relations that were established between expatriate education officers and the new class of Zambian political leaders and administrators.

This is a hopeful and unpretentious book, based on the author's experience of a rewarding career in a rich and varied culture at an important moment in the country's history. The book will be of great interest to all those who have worked in the Colonial Service, as well as to students of African history.
