Originally published in 1945, this book provides an examination of the nature of land tenure in the 'colonial territories'. Examples from across the globe are used to provide a practical guide to systems of tenure and their relationship with European influences. An understanding of this is presented as being of fundamental importance to the future of the colonies. As noted in the foreword, 'It is not too much to say that colonial territories will be made or marred for generations by the actions of the tutelary powers within the next decade or two.' This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in land tenure and colonial history.
