Aspects of empire : a second Corona anthology by A. H. M Kirk-Greene( )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The British Empire was the most powerful empire known to the modern world, but power and confidence were ebbing by the mid-20th century. Aspects of Empire, a second anthology of writings from the Corona Club journal, shows the British Parliament, Government, the Colonial Office and leading actors preparing for decolonisation. This was against a backdrop of ever-growing needs in the territories when imperial resources were increasingly limited - reflecting Britain's diminished position especially following World War II. There were the political demands of future self-government, the implication

The diary of Hamman Yaji : chronicle of a West African Muslim ruler by Hamman Yaji( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August 1927, British colonial authorities arrested Hamman Yaji, Emir of Madagali, an infamous slave trader who had terrorized the neighboring montagnard populations of the Northern Cameroons and bedeviled the colonial administrations of three nations. His diary was seized and soon became a fabled document in northern Nigerian history. Written in Arabic and translated into English by a British colonial official, the diary chronicles Hamman Yaji's daily activities between 1912 and 1927. He recorded his daily routine - where he traveled, his slaving raids and slave-trading activities, visitors and gifts received, his relations with friends and family and with the British administration, and his practice of Islam. This rare and remarkable document, made accessible to scholars for the first time since its composition more than seventy-five years ago, is enhanced by a substantial introduction that places Hamman Yaji in historical and cultural perspective and describes the diary's discovery and translation, and its significance for British colonial and West African history

"This is the first ever combined history of Britain's famous overseas civil services, the Indian Civil Service, the Colonial Administrative Service, and the Sudan Political Service. Set within the need both in Whitehall and overseas to administer the expanding empire, the growth of each Service and the nature of the work are document in detail."--Jacket
State and society in Francophone Africa since independence( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays by leading European and African scholars examines the politics, economics, international relations and aspects of the literary scene of France and of the former territories of Francophone West Africa since 1960. The approach is emphatically a thematic one rather than a country-by-country analysis, and is one of the few studies of state and society in French-speaking Africa to be published in English
On crown service : a history of HM colonial and overseas civil services, 1837-1997 by A. H. M Kirk-Greene( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Colonial and Overseas Civil Service grew with Britain's overseas and imperial expansion and could be identified with the great age of imperial power, producing a serene and confident image of imperial rule. But this was an empire of service rather than domination." "On Crown Service is the story of that Service and of the men and women from Britain - and, increasingly, from the former dependant territories - who ran it. It shows how the Service affected the lives of over 600 million people across the globe. Its work included administration and law, medical, nursing and veterinary services, scientific research, education, agriculture, engineering and transport, communication and irrigation."--Jacket

Gold Coast diaries : chronicles of political officers in West Africa, 1900-1919 by Thora Williamson( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who was the real 'Sanders of the River'? Thora Willamson's immense labour of love provides the answer." "Gold Coast Diaries is based entirely on the diaries of political officers who served the Gold Coast Colony and Protectorate - in what was later to become Ghana - during the early years of imperial rule. It gives a graphic, often amusing and always riveting, first-hand account of the 'daily round' of colonial government, including the administration of justice, tax collection, solving disputes, life on trek in bush and forest, as well as insights into relations with those being governed, whether chiefs or ordinary people." "Many names appear here who went on to great office among the proconsuls later in their careers - Cecil Armitage, Hugh Clifford, Frank Fuller, Charles Harper - and all the diarists held important office in the territory and elsewhere in the Empire. Some, like RS Rattray, who spent a whole career in the territory - became a fount of knowledge on the Gold Coast and understood important and detailed anthropological, historical, geographical and linguistic research invaluable to scholars and to readers with a taste for the exotic. These 'brief chronicles of time' provide a sharp, detailed and sympathetic insight into the life of the early Colonial Service and will be of great interest to students of British colonial and imperial history."--Jacket
