White Men’s Dream, Black Men’s Blood



This book focuses on British expansionism in southern Africa during the last three decades of the nineteenth century. In particular, it studies the connection between the birth of the mineral industries in southern Africa and the conquest of virtually every independent polity in Africa. It argues that British expansionism throughout southern Africa focused on creating a cheap and readily available supply of African labor through conquest, dispossession, taxation, and the creation of the so-called “native reserves” or “locations.”
