Post-colonial imperial history

British engagement with Africa



My research examines post-colonial imperial history and British engagement with Africa, and especially Kenya, during the final years of decolonisation and into the post-colonial period. I explore the multiple and multifaceted economic, military, personal and diplomatic networks which were sustained well beyond formal independence.
