Africa Called brings Africa and its peoples to life and paints a picture of an optimistic nation approaching decolonization. During much of the 20th century, British Colonial Africa was considered ripe for commercial and economic progress. "Development" was the watchword and basis of government policy. Alan Hayward--after attaining a degree in chemistry and a career in food science--was recruited by the Colonial Service in 1948 to work in Nigeria. He and his team researched ways of improving the quality of subsistence foodstuffs and export crops like cocoa, groundnuts, and palm oil--all vital for the nascent colonial economy and export trade. Hayward sets his development work in an exciting and vibrant context of exotic travel, sport, and a rich social life.
