About This Item

(London, Geoffrey Bles, 1962). Illustrated by George Adamson. Small octavo, pictorial dustwrapper, pp. 106. Edges lightly foxed. Parody, satire on Apartheid legislation. 'Jan Domm was as upright and noble a specimen of White Man as you could hope to meet. He believed, with a belief even stronger perhaps than that held by the ordinary good citizen, that the Government, all-wise and all-benevolent, could make no mistakes. So when he was re-classified as Coloured, Jan Domm enthusiastically accepted the change in his status and bore its consequences with humility, pride and praise for the wonders of racial discrimination. True, he lost his wife, his children, money, job and sundry physical faculties. But to what a Cause!' .
