Josiah Brownell received his Ph.D. from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London in 2009, and has a J.D. from the University Of Virginia School Of Law. His research focuses on African history, comparative settler colonialism, and the end of the British Empire.
'This is a meticulously researched and eloquently expressed work, which makes its provocative argument very well. The author's primary contention is that demographics are a critical yet overlooked factor in the history of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) between 1960 and 1979. Josiah Brownell's argument is based in detailed empirical evidence, drawing together data from a range of sources that have not previously been considered in this way. He provides a welcome comparison with the fate of other white settler projects in Central and Southern Africa and detailed exploration of the centrality of population issues. This book is a welcome addition to the literature on general African history, contemporary Southern African history, as well as British decolonization and the end of empire in Southern Africa.' - Sue Onslow, co-Head of Africa International Affairs Programme, LSE IDEAS, The London School of Economics and Political Science
