Format: Hardcover
I have had an interest in Margery Perham, ever since I started reading about the British in West Africa. The more I read the more her name appeared, I have read her biography on Lugard and her own autobiography. But there is very little out there to detail the importance of this woman.

I thought I might even have to write one myself!

Thankfully for me and the wider public this author has beaten me to it.

This Book is LONG OVERDUE.

HASH(0x8aad809c) out of 5 stars Disappointing biography 14 Oct. 2015
By doh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Rather superficial analysis of a complex and fascinating personality and therefore lacking real depth in understanding what she accomplished in her day and the significance of it today.
