"The theme of this book is definitely stated in its title. It is a study of the British Board of Trade and the machinery of imperial control: what it was, the men who directed it, their ideas of the relations of the mother country to the colonies, the relations of the colonial office to other branches of government, and the conditions under which colonial affairs were administered. The study has inevitably included economic and industrial questions; transportation, money, and means of communication profoundly affected administration in the colonies and have been discussed from that point of view. Some of the large questions of colonial policy, such as boundaries, the westward movement of population and the attitude of the British government towards it, Indian relations and Indian problems, and commercial and trade policies, have been discussed at considerable length." - Preface. First Edition of this classic history of British colonial government of the American colonies, in its quite uncommon, plain dust wrapper.
