Gbendembu: An Evaluation of British Indirect Rule: 1896 - 1930
MetadataShow full item record
In the course of this paper I intend to describe and evaluate the effects and effectiveness of the coming of British indirect rule to a village in the northern portion of Sierra Leone. In the first portion I will establish the framework within which the rule was imposed so that the significance of the developments in Gbendembu may be more clearly visible and understood. The analysis of events in Gbendembu is presented with the aid of the model which is developed in Appendix I. This model is my own response to the need for some means of establishing a methodology applicable to the events of a v1llage which is useful both for the collection of data, for its analysis, and for the comparative analysis of events occurring in different villages.
