Can useful lessons be learned from British colonial development policies? This work studies the economic and political relationship with her tropical colonies from 1850 and 1960. Focusing on the former colonies and their development problems rather than Britain itself, Colonialism and Development provides a crucial background to understanding the present opportunities and difficulties facing the countries since their independence.
