Africa Called" brings Africa and its peoples, especially Nigeria, to life and paints a picture of an optimistic Africa approaching decolonisation and far from later disillusionment. Alan Hayward was born in 1916, in London. During the Second World War he was retained by the British Government as a food chemist, to assist with the production of food substitutes. In 1948 he left the UK for Nigeria, as part of a four man Colonial survey, where he stayed for fourteen years.

Africa Called brings Africa and its peoples to life and paints a picture of an optimistic nation approaching decolonization. During much of the 20th century, British Colonial Africa was considered ripe for commercial and economic progress. Development" was the watchword and basis of government policy. Alan Hayward-after attaining a degree in chemistry and a career in food science-was recruited by the Colonial Service in 1948 to work in Nigeria.

Africa Called is an attractive looking book, with good maps, bibliography and plenty of photographs, both black and white and in colour. Hayward is interested in food both as a scientist and a consumer. Unfortunately it is a slight and anecdotal work which does not live up to its initial promise. He claims that it was not difficult to obtain human flesh in eastern Nigeria but draws back from telling us if he actually tried it himself. He is informative on edible insects and tells us that among Nigerians Brylcream was thought to taste good on bread.

Africa was wide-open territory for expatriate scientists, engineers and technicians during much of the 20th century. British Colonial Africa was considered ripe for commercial and economic progress and 'Development' was the watchword and basis of government policy, as is clear from the Colonial Development and Welfare Acts. Alan Hayward came from a family of technicians and engineers - his father was an inventor and his brother worked on decoding operations at Bletchley Park - and after his degree in chemistry and a career in food science, he was recruited by the Colonial Service to work in Nigeria in 1948. He and his team researched ways of improving the quality of subsistence foodstuffs and export crops comprising cocoa, groundnuts and palm oil - all vital for the nascent colonial economy and export trade. African Colonial life provided expatriates with an immense and fascinating challenge. Hayward sets his development work in an exciting and vibrant context of exotic travel, sport - a huge expatriate enthusiasm - and a rich social life. Africa Called brings Africa and its peoples, especially Nigeria, to life and paints a picture of an optimistic Africa approaching decolonisation and far from later disillusionment.
