British Federalism in Southern Africa

Dan Juma




This book argues that a section of British policy makers, intellectuals and local settlers long considered constitutional federation the default medium of maintaining political control in Southern Africa, that frontier stretching from Southern Rhodesia through Central Africa to Kenya and greater East Africa. British Federalism in Southern Africa is an intervention seeking to reduce the gap occasioned by the neglect of ideological and ideational aspects in the study of federalism in British Africa.


[Juma] recovers the range of negative critiques of imperial organization and colonial statecraft mounted by the British themselves, and illuminates constructive federal imaginings and counter-projects they propagated as alternative political organizations.
