"The wellbeing and development of peoples not yet able to stand by themselves, form a sacred Trust of Civilisation." -The Covenant of the League of Nations, Article 22 (1924) The Dual Mandate in British Tropical Africa (1922) by Frederick Lugard was written as a guide to British administrators in colonized Africa. Lugard's experience as governor of Nigeria among other colonial and African experiences made him an authority on British colonialism. His writing provided guidance for the colonies' governance using indirect rule and touted the spread of Christianity. He also promoted an increasing commerce through exports and curbing slave trade. This work is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand colonialism of this era through a primary source document.
