This paper explores the debates at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries on the purposes and value of empire. It contrasts the views of the radical imperialists with those of leading liberals of the day, and then explores the way, despite an unfavourable climate, liberals in the education system being developed for African colonies sought to make an impact. Examples are drawn from the histories of South Rhodesia and Tanganyika.
