Review Quotes
'œKesner's book offers the most comprehensive survey yet of the attempt to organize a state-directed policy of colonial development during Chamberlain's eight-year stay at the Colonial Office. ... Kesner outlines the background of policy formation within both the Colonial Office and the Treasury cogently and in detail. ... The chief value of the book lies in taking the detailed account of Britain's economic strategy towards a number of dependent colonies--principally West and South Africa, the West Indies, Cyprus, and Ceylon.... The book has an extensive bibliography and a useful biographical index on leading civil servants and politicians of the period. ...an indispensable source of information ... for a long time to come.'' Journal of Imperial and Colonial History
