  9. Paper by Professor Eric Stokes entitled: ‘A Yuletide cautionary tale of two cities intended for the instruction of seminar organizers and others’. This gives a satirical account of a seminar in the Cambridge Commonwealth and Overseas History series held on 26 November 1975. The seminar was addressed by Dr Roger Owen of St Antony’s College, Oxford whose paper was very critical of the ideas in Africa and the Victorians by Professors Robinson and Gallagher (London, Macmillan, 1961). (Dr Owen’s paper is attached.) Professor Stokes’ account uses the terminology of the Sino-Soviet split with Oxford taking the place of Moscow and Cambridge that of Peking. The Cambridge academics who participated are given appropriate Chinese names. Xerox copy. 10ff.
