  • Richer Than All His Tribe is a very poignant story for any-one who experienced the efforts of the British Colonial Ofiice, particularly anywhere in Africa. Sadly many experiences described are based on real events. The book is written in a pragmatic way obviously drawing on personal knowledge.

  • The sequal to "The Tribe That Lost Its Head" this 1968 novel traces the downward trajectory of a representative African state in its post-colonal years. Although set in a make-believe country, it is a cookie-cutter representation of any sub-Saharan ex-Brit colony or protectorate you could imagine: Sierra Leone, Gambia, Ghana, Zambia - and most recently, Zimbabwe.

    Dated because of its Cold War setting and the fact that people who had direct experience of what the author depicts are now dead or too aged to bother any longer. Political correctness has also laid its be-vermined blanket over the whole.

    Monsarrat was a best-selling author in his day (The Cruel Sea) and spent many years as a colonial officer in Africa - much of this book's fact-points are self-evidently derived from his keen personal interest in the African situation as it unfolded in the 1960's.

    Few modern readers will, I suspect, be able to relate to the story or its central characters. This is the novel's greatest shortcoming in 2013. Monsarrat's writing style is more stilted and oblique than is the norm today, so this may be off-putting for some.
