Legacy of Scottish Missionaries in Malawi
1992 0-7734-9574-6
Examines the attempt of the Central African Mission, and the work of the Scots, as they sought to fulfill Livingstone's vision of a missionary enterprise engaged in trade and commerce between Britain, Scotland and Malawi. It develops a full picture of the Scottish enterprise by examining both their internal policies on conversion, education, African culture and relations with Malawians, and their external policies focusing on socio-political involvement. The study contributes to knowledge of Malawi in the areas of missiology, and colonial history and politics, and gives insight into the attitude of Scottish churches and the Foreign Office.
