First published in 1943 this excellent study of British activities in Nigeria, written from the detached viewpoint of an American, is made especially worthwhile by the inclusion of information drawn from, among others, Lord Lugard, Sir William Geary, Sir Richmond Palmer and Sir Charles Orr. There is an superbly annotated twenty-eight page bibliography to show the basis of the author's main conclusion that 'The desire to open new markets for the products of British industry, and the importance of controlling the important raw materials available in Nigeria were of much great significance than the investment of capital, of the desire to find new homes for England's surplus population'. Also the author's treatment of international rivalry in West Africa is still considered to be the best available.
