STATE AND ECONOMY IN KANO, C.1894 TO 1960:  A Study of Colonial Domination

By Sule Bello, PhD


This study is the outcome of a research work submitted, in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the award of doctorate degree, to the Department of History, ABU Zaria in 1982. The book is a critical reconstruction of the history of colonialism in Africa from the point of view of political economy which focuses on Kano as a case study. The study identifies the essential features of colonial domination, with particular reference to the role of the colonial state in the development of the colonial economy, against the background of the specific economic attributes that Kano represented as the pre-colonial metropolis of Africa’s Trans-saharan and West Africa’s regional, trading network.

The study challenges many conventional views and theories on the nature of the colonial economy in the process offering fresh perspectives on the topic, as well as a refreshing re-interpretation of colonial primary sources. The book is an essential reading for all those who want to understand the creation, structures and problems of Africa’s contemporary economies.
