'Administration and Politics in Colonial Kenya', Ph. D thesis, Yale University, 1974.
2.
I have found no better illustration of this point than the retrospective reflections of a former colonial administrator in Kenya in a letter to one of his colleagues commenting on an earlier manuscript by John Lonsdale and myself:

most historians and political writers attribute to the diverse parties in a country and to its governors calculated intentions and conscious objectives in any sequence of events which were just not there and did not exist. Reactions and purposes, whether among Governors, PCs, Elected Members, African leaders or Business Nabobs were never so informed, cool or politically so composed as L. infers. I don't think they were even all that conscious that they were muddled when they were muddled. . . . But in fact you and I know 'it was not like that when it happened' or that 'old so-and-so was incapable of such profundity of intention or action'. ( T.C. Colchester to R.O. Hennings, 30 November 1978)

The reality of this subjective experience and its significance within the context of the structural forces and ideological assumptions reconstructed by the historian or political scientist is the central theme around which this study deals with the role of human agency in the making of history.
