Livingstone's last journey by Reginald Coupland( Book )

28 editions published between 1945 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Reginald Coupland was widely regarded as an authority on David Livingstone, a Scottish Congregationalist pioneer medical missionary and an explorer in Africa, who was one of the most popular national heroes of late-19th-century in Victorian Britain. Coupland's previous works on African history include Kirk on the Zambesi (1928) and The Exploitation of East Africa, 1856-1890 (1939). Intended as a sequel to Kirk on the Zambesi, Livingstone's Last Journey was written several years prior to its first publication in 1945, but was then laid aside while Coupland undertook a full-scale study of East African history. It then became due and ready for completion in the autumn of 1939, but was further delayed by the outbreak of World War II. This postponement proved profitable however, as in the course of the war new and valuable documentary material--in particular the Kirk and Waller Papers--became available and were thus able to be included in its eventual publication. A remarkable biographical account by an exceptional historian.?One of the soundest and best-balanced English biographies that I have had the satisfaction of reading for a very long time. It is a remarkable book.????????Peter Grenwell in Daily Mail?It is a noble book about a very noble man; it describes a period of British and European history in which man's struggles and problems greatly resembled our own.????????Sir John Squire in Illustrated London News?This is a book which Englishmen may be proud to read.????????London Quarterly

The Cripps mission by Reginald Coupland( Book )

27 editions published between 1942 and 2016 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author of this book had been for several months in India studying the Indian constitutional problem when the Cripps Mission arrived. At Sir Stafford Cripps' request, Professor Coupland joined his staff, and this book is the result of close personal observation of the Mission at work, reinforced by a thorough knowledge at first hand of the background issues out of which the Cripps Mission was born. With admirable brevity and clarity Professor Coupland traces the course of events in India from the outbreak of the present war, through the?August Offer,? the answering?Sapru Proposals,? the arrival of Sir Stafford Cripps with the Draft Declaration, down to the final rejection of the Draft by all political parties. By a careful analysis of the attitudes of Congress and the Moslem League, as well as those of the minority groups, and the sharp divisions of opinion between opposing factions within the parties, the author is able to show why the negotiations, begun and carried on with high hopes on both sides, eventually broke down. The story of the Cripps Mission is told without bias by a man who cannot regard it as a complete failure, since for the first time in the history of Anglo-Indian relations, the essential sincerity of the British government in general and its emissary in the person of Sir Stafford Cripps in particular was in the main not questioned by the Indian people or their leaders
