About this book

Revised edition of this pioneering book, originally published in 1977.

'When Helge Kjekshus's Ecology Control and Economic Development in East African History appeared in 1976 it heralded the dawning of a new age of historical research in Africa, in which the role of colonial rule in promoting ecological change would become an increasingly prominent theme.' - David Anderson in Environmental History '...a founding text in the historiography of the African environment...worthwhile, and further justifies making this influential book available again in an affordable edition.' - The International Journal of African Historical Studies
