Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...Laid out in clearly signposted chapters, dense with information yet enlivened with shrewd comment and the telling phrase, this is an admirable introduction to a big subject. It fulfils the object of the series by 'drawing on the latest fruits of scholarship' and itself makes a contribution to scholarship; in doing so this book deserves a readership beyond the student market for which it is primarily intended.'"

A. J Stockwell, African Affairs

"undoubtedly the best attempt yet to get to grips with this complex topic"

Richard Rathbone, English Historical Review
