Managing British Colonial And Post-Colonial Development - new book

2004, ISBN: 9781843833017

ID: 15467309

Britain's Crown Agents' Office is a unique development agency. Until the early 1960s, its clients were colonial governments, and, thereafter, the administrations of dependencies and newly independent countries. As well as purchasing a large proportion of its customers' imports, it provided them with finance and managed their investments. It was thus one of the largest buyers of goods in the UK. Britain's Crown Agents' Office is a unique development agency. Until the early 1960s, its clients were colonial governments, and, thereafter, the administrations of dependencies and newly independent countries. As well as purchasing a large proportion of its customers' imports, it provided them with finance and managed their investments.

The book contributes to a number of current debates in development studies, adds to our understanding of the London financial market and the competitiveness of British industry, and shows how present day aid agencies can learn much from the arrangements of the past. Reviews Deals with some of the most important [.] questions of British imperial history: the costs and benefits of British colonialism for the colonies and for the domestic British economy. [.] A fine study. INTERNATIONAL HISTORY REVIEW With this major work, we are now better placed to appreciate the complexities of Britain's relations with its overseas territories, and if the vital, yet little known, years after independence. THE OVERSEAS PENSIONER In the end, specialists of British economic history will certainly find Sunderland's work both refreshing and informative, while students of British imperial history or British history in general will certainly have something to learn from this work. All said and done, Managing British Colonial and Post-Colonial Development: The Crown Agents, 1914-1974 stands out as an example of how economic history should be written-detailed and yet accessible to those interested and yet non-speci.
