About This Item

(Cape Town: Frederick L. Cannon, 1952). 180 x 122 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. (x) + 54; cartoon illustrations by Peter Ogilvie. Wrappers tanned; sporadic foxing. Good condition. "History, especially South African history, may be either OBJECTIVE or SUBJECTIVE. If it is OBJECTIVE, it must have an object, such as taking part in quizzes or passing an examination. If it is SUBJECTIVE, it must have a subject, just like a verb. Because we don't like quizzes or examinations, and have always disliked verbs, we have tried to make our history neither OBJECTIVE nor SUBJECTIVE, but REJECTIVE. That is, we reject what we don't want. Our history is different in another way. There is a saying that historians always repeat one another. We have avoided that error and we repeat no other historian. We hope no one will repeat us." .
