Defeated by friends
The Central African Federation
This tells the story of Britain's last great imperial experiment: the founding, and destruction, of the Central African Federation (comprising Northern Rhodesia, Southern Rhodesia, and Nyasaland) in the 1950s and 1960s. It focuses on Roy Welensky, the prime minister of the Federation, and on his ideas that the destruction of the Federation signalled the downfall of the white man and of ‘his’ civilization. The chapter concludes with a discussion of his political influence in England, looking specifically at the Monday Club.
