'Eugenia Herbert's brilliant narrative of Barotseland in 1959...represents a related form of colonial administration memoir...Twilight on the Zambezi will deservedly earn recognition as a valuable contribution to the literature on colonial administration at the eventide of empire and as a classic portrayal of what the shift into imperial reverse gear meant to those involved, above all those in the boma and the kuta.' - Anthony Kirk-Green, The Overseas Pensioner 'As we would expect from the author, the result is neatly crafted and attractively written...securely grounded in an impressive command of the relevant literature, and the author visited the area herself in 1999.' - African History
