Excerpt from Southern Rhodesia
This volume is an attempt to record the administrative and industrial development of Southern Rhodesia since its occupation by the British South Africa Company. The writer in the pages which follow has endeavoured to interest not only those who have some direct link with the great country founded by the late Mr. Cecil Rhodes, but also those who study imperial questions, including problems affecting the progress of a young colony.
It is hoped that the book will be of use as a work of reference to those who have invested money in Southern Rhodesia, to the settlers who take an active interest in the administration of their own territory, and to the people of the Southern Colonies who have considered the future relationship of Southern Rhodesia to the rest of United South Africa. In endeavouring to make the book interesting to so many sections of the community, the writer has separately reviewed each subject under consideration, and in so doing some repetition of historical incidents has been unavoidable.
The greater portion of the chapters on gold mining has already appeared in a series of articles in the "Economist," on January 30th, 1909, and subsequent dates. It is now reproduced by kind permission of the Editor.
