Africa, Empire and Fleet Street

Albert Cartwright and West Africa Magazine

Jonathan Derrick

  • A dual biography: of a pioneering British anti-colonialist and of the newspaper he edited with distinction.
  • For decades before and after African independence, the London weekly West Africa was a well-regarded source of news on the region.
  • A nuanced biography of a complex man--one who ran a colonial magazine but was appreciated by Africans as someone who genuinely understood them.
