Conservative Reactions to Rapid Decolonization in East and Central Africa

Show Summary Details

Preview

Conservative reactions to the decolonization of West Africa are considered in the context of the party's links with business. This chapter seeks to examine the party's response to political developments in East and Central Africa, especially from 1959. Conservative reactions in East and Central Africa did not lend themselves to exact measurement, nor did they always conform to preconceived notions of ‘left—right’. There were waves upon the surface of Conservative opinion, affected as much by sudden changes within the party as anything else, yet these deeper divisions of opinion were undoubtedly present.

Keywords: Conservative reactions; decolonization; East and Central Africa
