Founding a Protectorate. History of Bechuanaland 1885–1895.


In 1884-5 Great Britain,unwillingly and under strong political,commercial and philanthropic pressures,annexed southern Bechuanaland and declared a protectorate over the area lying north of the new colony.The intention was to do as little as possible in the way of administration,but merely to prevent the territory from being occupied by anyone else;for Bechuanaland occupied a position of great inportance in southern Africa.This book describes the first 10 years of the Protectorates existence.
