From Civilization to Segregation · Social Ideals and Social Control in Southern Rhodesia, 1890–1934
By Carol Summers

This study examines the social changes that took place in Southern Rhodesia after the arrival of the British South Africa Company in the 1890s. Summer’s work focuses on interactions among settlers, the officials of the British South America Company and the administration, missionaries, humanitarian groups in Britain, and the most vocal or noticeable groups of Africans.

“This volume is a thoroughly researched, dynamic, and highly textured analysis. It represents an important contribution to Zimbabwean historiography and to studies of colonial ideology and practices more generally. The book is highly recommended for academic libraries and specialists.”
