This collection of essays, a "people's history", is a depiction of Zambia under colonial rule. The essays, written by former colleagues of Samuel Chipunga, evoke the period of British rule. Although the experience of colonialism was shared by other African countries, Zambia was in many ways unique. A consideration of ethnic stereotypes leads to an examination of labour relations; the accumulation of the "Boma" class and its guardianship of the Native Authority Treasury is portrayed in depth. Education and its role in Zambian society during the period is treated from the regional and gender aspects - its shortcomings and achievements are detailed. There is a chapter on the history of ideas in Zambia. The so-far-neglected initiative in entrepreneurship is delineated. Aspects of the essential and vigorous nature of Zambian popular culture is examined as part of the anti-colonial struggle.
