Description
1894 RHODESIA OF TODAY
E.F. Knight

E F. KNIGHT, a noted Victorian military correspondent, was sent by The Times of London to cover the campaign which Cecil Rhodes's settlers were mounting against the Ndebele nation in south-western Rhodesia.

In the event, the conquest of Matabeleland was swift and conclusive, and Bulawayo fell several weeks before his arrival in January of 1894.

Knight remained in Rhodesia for the next seven months, touring the young country and reporting on its development and likely prospects. His articles were later edited and published in book form under the title of Rhodesia of Today. The object of this slender volume about Rhodes's most ambitious colonial venture is clearly stated in the author's Preface. "On my return to the Cape Colony and England," Knight writes, "I met numbers of people who were anxious to learn from me all they could concerning the region I had left; among these were miners from California and Australia, traders, farmers, artisans, men of all degrees and conditions who were being attracted to South Africa by the Matabeleland boom. . . I (had) entered the country by way of Tati and Bulawayo, and, after having wandered some twelve hundred miles throughout its length and breadth, went out by Manica and Beira. I was thus enabled to gain a fair knowledge of this the first occupied and first to be developed portion of the vast territories which are within the sphere of the British South Africa Company's operations."

Knight's observations - on the Company's administration; on African labor and European immigration; on mining and land - tend to be somewhat superficial and partisan. Nevertheless, his account of the embryo colony provides a fascinating insight into the hopes and aspirations which inspired - and the delusions which beset - the first white Rhodesians.

Dr Murray Steele, in his lucid Foreword to the reprint edition, places Knight's comments into perspective. New material added to the original book includes several pages of excellent illustrations.
