Direct Rule and Development
This chapter analyzes the case of Mauritius, a former directly ruled British colony. It investigates the determinants of Mauritian development in order to identify the mechanisms that link direct colonial rule and development, thereby shedding light on whether or not the relationship between the two is causal. This chapter describes how the relatively bureaucratic, infrastructurally powerful and inclusive state made possible broad-based development during late colonialism and after independence and provides evidence that direct rule caused these state characteristics.
