Om My African Journey
In the early years of the 20th Century, Winston Churchill served as Undersecretary of State for the Colonies. During this time, he lobbied for permission to tour and inspect Britains holdings in East Africa. This book is a travelogue of sorts, documenting Churchills trip, the people he met, and his thoughts on how Britain might work to improve the lives of East African people under her rule.
This book is a vivid and compelling account of Churchills travels--and some of the thoughts and suggestions he raises will prove to be prescient. Its fascinating reading for Churchill enthusiasts and those interested in the historical relationship between Britain and its colonies toward the end of the Colonial Era.
