Description
ROLLINS RHODESIA
Henri Rollin

Henri Rolin, an eminent Belgian jurist, visited the Rhodesias during 1911-1912 to study their administrative and judicial systems. In 1913, he published Les Lois et 'Administration de la Rhodesie, now produced in English for the first time, under the new title-Rolin's Rhodesia. Appearing a year before the review of the Charter, the work, which must rank as the foremost text-book on the BSA Company's administration of the period, was intended as a guide for students of Colonial government, notably the Belgian Congo. His innumerable personal interviews and extensive bibliography testify to the thoroughness of his research. Rolin was most interested in the phenomenon of colonization through the agency of a commercial organization.

He defines the areas of responsibility of the Imperial government, the Chartered Company and the settlers. The study is presented in three parts: the political and legal organization; native policy; and legislation relating mainly to the whites, in particular the laws governing land ownership and mining rights. In dealing with Africans, he confesses to being a theorizing humanitarian, and sees the country as comprising a white aristocracy ruling a black proletariat. He admires the Rhodesian judicial system, sees both good and bad in the administration, wrestles with the vexed question of land ownership, and reviews the labor situation as it affects mining and farming.

Rolin's deep knowledge of the philosophy and nature of law, which he relates to the framework of society as a whole, and his lucid exposition, make the work intellectually satisfying to the scholar and of compelling interest to .the general reader. Rolin identified problems which even now bedevil reconciliation between the races but he observed sufficient promise in the spirit of Rhodesia's laws and government to encourage the conviction that with magnanimity and a total commitment, by both black and white, to work selflessly for the national good, Rhodesia will yet achieve the greatness it deserves.

The reprint is welcomed in a new Foreword contributed by Prof. Roger Louis of the University of Texas. There are 50 new illustrations.
