The Development of British East Africa1


    IT may be claimed for Lord Cranworth's volume that in a large measure it fulfils the author's main object of placing before intending settlers in British East Africa information and points of view which should be helpful to them. To this end the chapters dealing with agricultural and industrial prospects, primarily in the highlands of the Protectorate, furnish detailed information such as the most suitable areas as to soil and climate; the cost of land, labour, equipment, etc.; the requisite capital for various enterprises; and the return which may be anticipated.
