Description:
(Hilton: Brevitas, 2008). 8vo; original green rexine, lettered in gilt on spine and upper board; laminated pictorial dustwrapper (housed in removable protector); pp. (x) + xxiii + (i) + 256 + (xiv); period and recent photographs, the latter in colour. Fine condition. "Manna in the Desert, first published in 1920, offers a fascinating insight into life on a Great Karoo farm in the 19th century. Life experiences are brought within feeling and smelling range through the author's extraordinary powers of observation, reflection and description, his attention to detail, his thoughts about the environment and ecology decades before ecosystems was ever a buzzword, his enviable command of English, and his ability literally to turn into poetry some of his thoughts about both the mundane and the profound as he brings to us his 'revelation of the Great Karroo'." .

Slightest bump to top fore-corner; some spotting to endpapers and edges. Very good condition. "This book is not meant as a biography in the ordinary sense, but as a picture of that vanished South Africa in which I had the privilege of spending my early days. Since I have always enjoyed telling stories - and have been lucky enough to be asked for more by my listeners - I have this time gone all out and talked about many things one normally overlooks - food, drink and daily life in the old-time Backveld. My friend, Eric Rosenthal, who has 'pumped' me and put the story into shape, deserves my particular thanks." .

Illustrated throughout with many previously unseen photographs, The Boer War is a unique history of a much misunderstood conflict that has cast a long shadow across the century." .

'The author was for many years the Mining Editor of the Johannesburg Star, and in this book he tells the story of Odendaalsrust and the Free State gold mines. The book should prove of more than ordinary interest to those interested not only in shares but in the future of South Africa, because, as Mr. Carleton Jones states in his preface: "The book presents a chronicle of one of the most astonishing episodes in South Africa's rich story of gold-mining enterprises, and in addition an effort has been made to set Free State developments in what is perhaps their true perspective."

Through settlement and cultivation of the soil, the landscape has been subdued by man, but it has almost instinctively retained its pristine charm. Now a modern and civilised region, it has remained a true paradise of the world. Chris Jansen, accomplisehd photographer of Southern Africa and its peoples, has succeeded in capturing the fragile balance between nature and need in this bountiful land." .

Very good condition. "What are the real roots of the student protests of 2015 and 2016? Is it actually about fees? Why did the protests turn violent? Where is the government while the buildings burn? Former Free State University vice-chancellor Jonathan Jansen delves into the unprecedented disruption of universities that caught South Africa by surprise. In frank interviews with eleven of the VCs most affected, he examines the forces at work, why the protests escalate into chaos, and what is driving - and exasperating - our youth. This urgent and necessary book gives us an insider view of the crisis, tells us why the conflict will not go away and what it means for the future of our universities." .

'The Meru Land Case, which arose from the eviction of the Meru people from their homelands at Engare Nanyuki and their subsequent petition to the United Nations, was a catalyst in the growth of political consciousness in Tanzania. As Mwalimu Julius Nyerere says in his Foreword, the authors of this book "were both deeply involved in this controversy and Mr. Japhet himself became the first African from Tanganyika to address the Trusteeship Council" of the United Nations. There will doubtless be other books on this important issue but none will have the authenticity or commitment of this vivid reconstruction from personal recollection and the author's diaries, notebooks and correspondence.' .
