This book, first published in 1904, is the remarkable record of the journey made by these two men into the heart of empire. It provides a view not only of the nature of the colonial relationship as it appeared to colonized subjects, but it also raises intriguing questions about the role of indigenous elites in the making of colonial culture.

It also questions the function of the travel narrative in the constitution of the relationship between the metropolitan center and the colonial margin. The age of imperialism has come to be known as the great age of travel and much has been written about how British writers, administrators, and adventurers travelled to colonial outposts in order to define their relationship to their country and their cultures.

However, little attention has been paid to the select number of colonial subjects who made journeys to Britain. This edition has a new introduction which provides a historical and theoretical context for understanding Buganda in the culture of colonialism. The notes help contemporary readers obtain a sense of the questions that concerned the African travellers as they made their way through Britain.
