Beschreibung

This is a study of the evolving relationship between the British colonial state and the copper mining industry in Northern Rhodesia, from the early stages of development to decolonization, encompassing depression, wartime mobilization and fundamental changes in the nature and context of colonial rule.

'A valuable contribution to the historiography of business in central Africa, particularly during the period of decolonisation.'

Andrew Cohen, The Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History
