The wider colonial context of Sychnecta and Trosoghroga

He gave no evidence on how Cyprus would counter a French base at Alexandretta, or how Cyprus would protect British interests in Egypt, when it had not in the previous century, beyond him stating that more money should be thrown at redeveloping communications, money which he would not commit to giving. There was also little evidence that should a strong power take Cyprus it would ‘be a menace to the Suez Canal’ and other British interests, such as Palestine and Mesopotamia, and that in British

He made it very clear that the Atlantic slave trade was a uniquely disruptive force for evil in West Africa, and that Europeans were destroying Eden for the sake of money and because they were a naturally warlike people. It was a formulation of European actions in pursuit of Mammon and power that is remarkably similar to the idea of ‘war capitalism’ as enunciated today by practitioners of the New History of
