Cecil Rhodes: The Anatomy of Empire
Cecil Rhodes was both hero and victim of the British imperialism which flourished during the last three decades of the nineteenth century. He left a land bearing his name, university scholarships and the memory of an ideal, once commonly held, which has become a part of history. This book describes Rhodes' career from Bishop's Stortford and Oxford to Africa, his premiership of the Cape and his fall.
