Wrappers very lightly sunned; Very good condition. "John Laband's magisterial account of the dramatic emergence and tragic decline of the Zulu kingdom in the nineteenth century is the culmination of fifteen years of research and fieldwork. Rope of Sand ranges comprehensively from themes such as Zulu social and political organisation, through analysis of the vivid personalities and complex political manoeuverings of leading Zulu and their colonial opponents, to detailed descriptions of military campaigns and battles that command the imagination. Short as was its history as an independent state, the Zulu kingdom, with its proud traditions, lives on in the minds of the present generation as a potent expression of Zulu aspirations." .

"This book is aimed at all those involved in the care, management, breeding and rearing of poultry. Written throughout in a clear, easy to understand style, it shows you first of all how to identify the healthy bird, so that you can recognize the signs of illness and take action to prevent disease, or at least to treat it as early as possible. It advises you on when to call the vet and, most importantly, of what the vet will need to know. Dealing with each of the bird's systems, Peter Laing explains how it works, what can go wrong with it, how to avoid problems, and how to deal with them when they arise. Each system is explained in a concise and logical manner, with photographs and clear explanatory diagrams. All of the major poultry diseases and illnesses are covered, with detailed advice on prevention and… Read more

Unlike most rulers of men, he deserved all his titles. We moderns have been taught the muster-roll of the great that begins with Alexander of Macedon, continues through the Caesars, and ends with Napoleon.

Despite their backgrounds, human weaknesses and frailties, the characters are drawn together by the strong and binding cord of their common humanity."
