The Last British Liberals in Africa: Michael Blundell and Garfield Todd By Dickson Mungazi
1999 | 311 Pages | ISBN: 0275962830 | PDF | 2 MB
In this study of the clash of two traditions, British liberalism and African nationalism, Mungazi examines how Michael Blundell in Kenya and Garfield Todd in Zimbabwe used their liberal backgrounds to further the future of their adopted countries, despite threats and detention. Both Blundell and Todd believed that political leaders had a responsibility to serve the needs of the people as a condition of national development. By the time each came to power, European colonization had had a profoundly negative effect on the lives of Africans; Blundell and Todd sought to correct this by putting their positive views of Africans into practice. Using sources obtained in Kenya and Zimbabwe over the past 15 years, this work examines democratic traditions that have survived tumultuous times in recent years.
