An adequate account of Charles Temple’s personal background and, the details of his career have been given by Dame Margery Perham in Lugard: the years of authority1; by D. J . M. Muffett in Concerning brave captains2 and by Kirk-Greene in his recently published The principles of native administration in Nigeria—selected documents 1900-1947.3 Since these works are likely to be familiar to readers of this Introduction, there seems no point in repeating them here. In this book, the author explores more with his ideas. First Published in 1968. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
