Conflict and Collaboration in the Kingdoms of Western Uganda

£14.99

Product description

In histories tracing the establishment of colonial rule in Africa, resistance and conflict have often attracted more attention than other equally important African responses. Drawing on a broad range of oral and written sources, Professor Edward I. Steinhart examines the reactions of the political elites in the three kingdoms of Ankole, Toro and Bunyoro from 1890 to 1907. He contends that the responses to the imposition of European rule were conditioned by the historical, political and social realities in each kingdom.

The author describes the history of the kingdoms on the eve of colonial penetration and compares their reactions in order to illuminate the critical choices facing their leaderships. He explains why some of the leaders chose resistance and conflict while others opted for submission and collaboration. He also considers the secondary responses of each kingdom as it adjusted to colonial overrule following the victory of imperialism and the establishment of collaborating regimes.

Through controlled comparison and contrast of these three closely related societies, Professor Steinhart provides insight into the behaviour of African political elites in the face of European imperialism. Not only do his conclusions reflect analyses of African attitudes and experiences but they also offer a balanced critique of the crucial processes of conflict and collaboration.

Internally clean and bright. Slight foxing to page edges. Wear/creasing to cover. Small sticker residue mark on back cover.
