Since I knew Sir Glyn and the book's entire cast of characters for many years, I have a particularly keen sense of appreciation of this biography. The reader will be absorbed with Sir Glyn's masterful orchestration of colonial Nyasaland's transition to independent Malawi, tactfully working with the brilliant but mercural Dr. H. Kamuzu Banda, Malawi's Founding Prime Minister then President, outraged European settlers, bumbling Colonial Office officials at Whitehall and the jealous Nyasa elite vying for personal power.
Professor Baker's outstanding books are written against a background of exceptional documentation and scholarship, yet are all thoroughly enjoyable reads by anyone interested in British Colonial and/or African history. Once begun , you cannot and will not put them down!
