Lest you should think this unduly selfcentred I must say in self-defence that my own working life has, to my own great good fortune, coincided first with the end of colonialism and then with the first steps in a new internationalism. I almost said one foot in the old world and one in the new.

sites are in remote areas and the labour is relatively unskilled.
