Baker, Colin: Sir Glyn Jones: A Proconsul in Africa , London: I B Taurus, 2000

Hardback, first edition, near fine condition, no dust-jacket, publisher's original dark blue clothboards with silver-gilt blocking to front and spine, 352 pages including index, 16 b/w photo illustrations, 3 b/w maps--------------"British rule in the Central Africa protectorates of Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland covered little more than seven decades, and at the time of independence in 1964 there were a few officers who had served in their administrations for nearly half that period. Glyn Jones was one of them. The changes which he witnessed during his 35 years service were enormous. This book sets out, by studying Jones's life, in the first part to examine a fairly typical successful colonial adminstrative service career and, in the second part, to examine an unusually successful and remarkable continuation of that career." (Book ref. 2472 )  £ 30.00
