Abstract:Even in the short period - scarcely more than twenty years - in which African history has been a recognisable academic field of inquiry, cycles of ardent interest and subsequent disinterest in particular topics can be discerned. The present author investigates one such cyclical process, namely research done on the forms of primary resistance by Africans to the imposition of colonial rule in the classic period of European imperialism, say from 1880 to 1914. He deals almost exclusively with the areas of East and Central Africa - Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Malawi, Zimbabwe - where a more or less coherent debate can be seen. Bibliogr.
