The basis for this tumultuous time, in Migdal's estimation, was the fragmented social control implemented by British colonizers. Indian nationalists use nonviolence and non-cooperation, including strikes and boycotts, to compel the British to rescind the division. The daughter of missionaries, Schreiner takes on some of these issues in The Story of an African Farm. Looking broadly at the European colonial experience, Acemoglu, Johnson, and Robinson explain that exploitation of natives transpired when stable property rights intentionally did not exist.
