Nationalism in Colonial Africa

By Thomas Hodgkin
Muller, 1956
216 pp. $10.00

This is a valuable short analysis of nationalist movements in Africa. While remaining concrete, it treats its subject as a whole and is not a collection of potted histories. The character of nationalist movements, the changing social conditions in Africa that produce them, and some of the forces that shape them are set out concisely, on the basis of a great deal of recent scholarly work in a number of fields.
