Reviews

'This well-integrated collection honors senior Zambianist historian Andrew Roberts (who contributes an introductory overview) without trying to encompass his manifold interests. It attains greater coherence than a typical festschrift by focusing on the last years of colonialism, particularly the contentious Central African Federation era of c.1953-63. Solid individual chapters cover European setters; the Indian community; the political roles of the Catholic Church, traditional chiefs, and labor unions; and early US diplomatic contacts. Christopher Annear's essay on the Luapula River fishery notably advances the ongoing restudy of classic Rhodes-Livingstone Institute ethnographies. Perhaps most significant is coeditor Macola's revisionist view of pioneering nationalist leader Harry Nkumbula, crediting him with more astuteness and dedication than standard accounts. The editors dispute conventional views of an inevitable triumph by Kenneth Kaunda's United National Independence Party, which governed from 1964 to 1991. They emphasize clashing political visions among urban migrant elites in Lusaka, the Copperbelt and its northern hinterland, and Southern Province peasant producers represented by Nkumbula. This volume steers Zambian history in fruitful new directions and provides valuable components of any new consensus that may emerge. Summing Up: Recommended. Academic and large public libraries; all levels. -- T. P. Johnson, University of Massachusetts, Boston, Reviewed in 2012 mar CHOICE. 'This edited volume seeks to portray the complexity of late colonial history in Zambia. It accomplishes this goal by shedding light on conflicts in the nationalist movement, chiefly and religious institutions and experiences of Western and Asian communities.....The narrative character makes this volume an enjoyable read'. Esther Uzar, University of Basel, in 'African Studies Quarterly', Volume 13, Issue 3, Summer 2012 'The book makes a very effective contribution to the history of modern Zambia. It also makes for delightful reading, typical of those young historians of this part of Africa who refer to themselves as Zambianists and who also include their teacher among their number. Otakar Hulec, in Oriental Archive, No. 81, 2013
