Sir Glyn Jones, as last governor of Nyasaland, oversaw the transition of the country to Malawi. Involving widespread unrest, the removal of a governor, a state of emergency and commission of enquiry from London, these were some of the most stormy episodes in the story of the end of the empire. This biography, based on original sources, including the Glyn Jones papers to which the author had first and exclusive access, reveals Jones’ relationship with Hastings Banda in a new and controversial light.
