About this product
- DescriptionSir Garfield Todd, A Prime Minister of Southern Rhodesia, was a key figure in the history of Rhodesia and Zimbabwe. A compassionate New Zealander with a deep commitment to his adoptive country, Todd was determined to improve the conditions for the black population both ecomically and socially, and to prepare them for greater political participation. He also represented the liberal dichotomy: he entered politics to oppose racism, but was a member of the United Party which protected white privilege; he worked for African political advancement, yet strongly believed in Eurocentric tions of civilisation , and the need for educational and property qualifications before enfranchisement; he used the army to suppress strikes while at the same time setting up a commission to improve industrial relations. This book examines Todd's life and career from the perspective of this liberal dichotomy, providing a valuable assessment of a man whose contribution - for better or worse - helped to shape Zimbabwe.
