Excerpt from British Colonial Policy: 1783 1915

When we speak of Britain's Colonial policy a critic might at once Object that Great Britain has never had a Colonial policy. By sheer good fortune, it might be maintained, she stumbled into possession Of fertile places in various parts Of the earth and has succeeded in retaining them. There is a certain measure Of truth in this con tention. The British Empire is undoubtedly due to the political genius, the enterprise, the inde pendent spirit and the initiative of individuals, rather than to the constant and enlightened pursuit of a definite goal by the British Govern ment. Nevertheless, as we view it, the history 'of Great Britain's Colonial policy since 1783 is the history of an evolutionary process in Which there are three marked stages.

During the first period the mother country, disillusioned and disappointed, left the entire control of the Colonies nominally to the Secretary of State charged With their administration, in reality to the permanent Officials in the Colonial, Ofiice. Thus ruled from Downing Street, they came to resent the interference Of Mr. -mother Country' in their concerns, and clamoured for Responsible Government as the only permanent remedy of their political, economic and social disorders.
