About this book

Provides a vivid account of historical events in the mid-Luangwa valley of Zambia charting the political developments in the country, the establishment and policies in the British South Africa Company (1889), the Protectorate (1924), National Independence (1994) and the influence of British conservation societies.
`This volume provides some important oral history and makes accessible a large corpus of government and other records. It will raise the standard of the conservation policy debate, both regarding the specific justification of government and aid agency policies in Zambia, and the broad-brush overviews of conservation policy in Africa and elsewhere.' Stephen D. Prince, University of Maryland
