1983 Dissertation [same title]. I strongly recommend that scholars use the latest version of the e-book. Still, here is a link to a pdf copy of my entire 1983 dissertation, whose title is the same: “To the Bottom of the Heap: Educational Deprivation and its Social Implications in the Northwestern Province of Zambia, 1906-1945.” This link is to the University of Zambia’s pdf copy that I gave them years ago. Again, I suggest scholars use the new e-book: dissertation at UNZA.
An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Books, Articles and Dissertations focusing on the NWP from 1983-2014 was added to this page in 22nd August 2014. One page — of this four page bibliography — reviewed Prof. Pritchett’s recent work on Mwinilunga, which is arguably the best book written on any part of the NWP in recent years. (At the end of this Bibliography is a copy of Google’s description of Pritchett’s book.) Although this Bibliography became outdated and was removed from the website, a copy may still be downloaded: click this download button. Bibliography of recent works

Three historical Maps of Zambia, the NWP and south central Africa that appear in the E-Book
Missionary societies by 1945
Another historical map appears inside the front cover of Dugald Campbell’s Blazing Trails in Bantuland (London, Pickering & Inglis, 1933). Campbell was an early Brethren missionary and the map covers “the Beloved Strip” that stretched across eastern and northern parts of Angola into of Northern Rhodesia and the Congo. This region was (and still is) a major focus of Brethren missionary activity. Eventually it will be placed in an updated version of the e-book along with the three maps above.

Another academic publication by David Wilkin is “Refugees and British Administrative Policy in Northern Kenya, 1936-1938.” African Affairs, 1980, 79 (317), pp. 510-530. While not about the NWP, this publication may interest a few scholars. You can simply Google the title to find it. If you are a scholar at an academic institution, it will probably be free to acquire. If not, you will either have to pay, as it African Affairs has a copyright, or you write/email as indicated on the last page of this website: “You and I: Should we Connect” and I will send you an author’s copy.
