Decolonization or Liberation? Pages 3-23. Approaches to Decolonization in Sierra Leone.

When the historian John Hargreaves, who has died aged 91, began teaching university students in Sierra Leone in the . Initial work on west Africa was extended to cover the whole continent in his Decolonization in Africa (1988).

When the historian John Hargreaves, who has died aged 91, began teaching university students in Sierra Leone in the 1950s, the influence of 19th-century racialist ideas was still strong. Most Europeans assumed that Africans had no meaningful history of their own; the story of the continent was the story of European activities there. Here the interests of Africans, especially the nationalists, were balanced against the local concerns as well as the global activities and anxieties of the colonial rulers.

The decolonization of Africa took place in the mid-to-late 1950s to 1975, with sudden and radical regime changes on the continent as colonial governments made the transition to independent states; this was often quite unorganized and marred with viol.

The decolonization of Africa took place in the mid-to-late 1950s to 1975, with sudden and radical regime changes on the continent as colonial governments made the transition to independent states; this was often quite unorganized and marred with violence and political turmoil. There was widespread unrest and there were organized revolts in both Northern and sub-Saharan colonies, especially in French Algeria, Portuguese Angola, the Belgian Congo and British Kenya.

As part of "The postwar world" series, this provides an historical account of the rapid relinquishment of the colonial control which European governments held over most of Africa during the first half of the 20th century. While the scope of the book is intercontinental, attention is paid to the particular problems of different regions of Africa, and some attempt is made to illustrate the historical individuality of each country. Also, while "decolonization" is narrowly defined as a process culminating in independence, the author recognises and examines the continuing influence of many former colonial powers.
