WHY did Britain acquire a scattering of colonial possessions in Tropical Africa, annexing new territories and enlarging existing ones during the last quarter of the nineteenth century?

Such questions have long fascinated historians, not least because of the need to fit Africa into general explanations of European overseas expansion and because of the connection with debates over theories of imperialism.
