Livingstone (Headway Guides for Beginners Great Lives Series)
Both a biography and a study of colonial development, this introductory guide to Livingstone is a critical appraisal of the first man to bring an understanding of central Africa and its problems to the attention of the rest of the world. The text explores Livingstone's background, the times he lived in, and his life as a missionary, doctor, explorer and opponent of the slave trade. It also looks at his remarkable friendship with H.M. Stanley, and the ultimate effect of his work in relation to colonial development and African nationalism.
