Struggle for Africa
by Vernon Bartlett


Publisher: Frederick A. Praeger, New York
Copyright: 1953

This is the first comprehensive survey of the continent's vast range of tremendous problems economic, political, social and cultural. And they are discussed by a distinguished observer with deep concern and human compassion but also with scholarly detachment and scrupulous fairness toward all sides involved in the struggle. Those who have been bewildered by their daily dosage of newspaper and magazine reports dealing, usually out of context, with single African problems and areas, will finally find in this book a clear explanation of the effect of the sudden impact of Western civilization on the world's most primitive and perhaps potentially wealthiest continent with its 150 million inhabitants, its 26 different major ethnic groups with over 700 distinct languages. What emerges is a picture of unbelievable contrasts and differences: The primitive society of the bush close to the gigantic industrial works of the Belgian Congo. Different attitudes and methods of dealing with the Black Man range from defensive oppression of a slave stratum in the Union of South Africa to "creative imperial abdication" practiced by the British in varying degrees and the managerial revolution initiated by the Belgians.
