Abstract:This paper examines the attempts made to form a federation of Northern Rhodesia, Southern Rhodesia and Nyasaland (now Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi, respectively), and the views on this proposal of the various stakeholders in the process. In particular, it looks at the period beginning with the Nyasaland governorship of Sir Geoffrey Colby in March 1948 and his attempts to resist the creation of the federation, which was eventually formally established in 1953. He believed that the federation would not work and was proved correct after a decade of its existence. Bibliogr. [ASC Leiden abstract]
