About this title

Synopsis:

This fascinating book is based entirely on the diaries of political officers who served the Gold Coast Colony and Proctorate in the early years of imperial rule. It gives a graphic, often amusing and always riveting and first-hand account of the ""daily round"" of administration, including the administration of justice, tax collection, solving disputes, life on trek in bush and forest, relations with chiefs and with ordinary people. The author provides a sharp, detailed, and sympathetic insight into the life of the early Colonial Service in the Gold Coast, now Ghana and the vast range of personalities involved.

About the Author:

Thora Williamson has extensively researched the history of the Gold Coast using diaries kept by other administrative officers kept in the Archives in Accra.
