The Enigma of Colonialism

An Interpretation of British Policy in West Africa

by Anne Phillips

  • Description
  • Reviews
The discussion of pre-colonial slavery shows how slavery became integrated into the new colonial economy.
If colonialism was the product of capitalism, as conventional wisdom would have it, why were the intersts of capitalism so ill-served? This is the central enigma which Anne Phillips confronts in this study of British colonial policy formulation in West Africa.
