Description:
(New York, Columbia University Press, 1969). Dustwrapper, partly and slightly stained, black cloth, pp. xi + 257 + (1), tables. 'In the fast-growing populations of the developing tropics, rural areas are no longer able to absorb the vast increases in their populations. In Ghana the result is striking-over a quarter of the population now lives in the towns. This book sets out to examine the kinds of people migrating to the towns, the effect of their migration on the rural areas they leave and the urban areas they adopt, their methods of travel and of solvig the problems of accommodation and work, their degree of satisfaction with town life, the numbers returning to the village, and their reasons for doing so. It thus discusses whether and when a truly urban population is created. Those specialising in any branch of the social sciences, and also the layman with an interest in the way tropical African countries are developing, will welcome information to be found here.' .

(New York: Twayne Publishers, 1968). Twayne's World Authors Series, number 40. 8vo; original red rexine, lettered in silver gilt on spine and upper cover; no dustwrapper; pp. 160, incl. index. Library ink stamp to copyright page; library ink stamps and label scars to rear endpaper; slight impression to lower board. Good. "Since his first novel, Cry, the Beloved Country, appeared in 1948, Alan Paton has been accepted as one of the foremost interpreters of South African life and society through the medium of literature. Prior to 1948 he had gained a fine professional reputation for his creative approach to problems of penal reform; and in more recent years he has felt compelled to enter public life as an active leader of the Liberal Party to promote the spirit of non-racial democracy in South Africa. The principal aim of this book has been to describe and evaluate Alan Paton's literary achievement in fiction, drama, biography, and poetry. But I have also sought, where possible, to… Read More

Description:
(Cape Town: Zebra Press, 2006) 1868729036. 230 x 150 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. xxii + 330, incl. index. As new. "Politics in South Africa is alive and vibrant, although the media often fail to reflect this. Anatomy of South Africa brings that political world to life. It presents a vivid, up-to-date picture of how power operates in the new South Africa and who really makes the decisions around here. It is people who make politics, and this book is about personalities as well as the institutions they belong to. Richard Calland takes the reader along the corridors of power - from the presidency and the cabinet to the judges and the media, via the labyrinth of the ANC-led alliance - mixing vivid anecdote with solid research. The result is an accessible yet authoritative account of who runs South Africa, and how. The title is borrowed from Anthony Sampson's influential work about who ran Britain, Anatomy of Britain. Like Sampson before him, Calland has a fly-on-the-wall,… Read More

"A man of great determination, but of a kindly, sympathetic, and understanding nature, Key showed himself to be a good administrator and a dedicated missionary. His fluency in the Xhosa tongue enabled him to make extensive translations from the Book of common prayer,… Read More

"William Kentridge's drawing-based works, encompassing animated films, theatre and opera productions, present a uniquely evocative, emblematic view of the state of South Africa today ...

European art critic and curator Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev discusses with the artist the political and philosophical dimensions of his relationship to drawing. Booker Prize-winning South African novelist J.M. Coetzee focuses on the artist's animated film History of the Main Complaint (1996), as a pivotal point in the development of… Read More

Near-fine condition. 'First discovered in 1930, the diamonds of Sierra Leone have funded one of the most savage rebel campaigns in modern history. These "blood diamonds" are smuggled out of West Africa and sold to legitimate diamond merchants in London, Antwerp, and New York, often with the complicity of the international diamond industry. Eventually, these very diamonds find their way into the rings and necklaces of brides and spouses the world over. Blood Diamonds is the gripping tale of how the diamond smuggling works, how the rebel war has effectively destroyed Sierra Leone and its people, and how the policies of the diamond industry--institutionalized in the 1880s by the De Beers cartel--have allowed it to happen.' .
