Description:
(New York, Council on Foreign Relations, 1987). 8vo; original burgundy cloth; laminated dustwrapper somewhat edgeworn; pp. xii + 51. Very good condition. "General Obasanjo . . . offers a broad appraisal of Africa's well-being in this book, adapted from the Leffingwell lecture series he gave at the Council on Foreign Relations in March 1987. He is acutely aware of Africa's problems, and warns of the consequences of further delay in seeking solutions. He argues that the overall answer lies in development of economic resources and manpower, but each country must be treated individually, and problems must be resolved in the context of Africa's unique environment and challenges." .

Description:
(Pretoria, Raad vir Geesteswetenskaplike Navorsing, 1982). Pictorial dustwrapper, pictorial boards, endpaper map, pp. (x) + 223, photographic illustrations. Owner's name on the title-page. Good condition. Blurb: 'Die staking wat meer as twee maande geduur het en waartydens nagenoeg 680 soldate, polisiemanne en burgerlikes gedood of verwond is, was 'n gebeurtenis wat as't ware moes plaasvind om spanninge wat oor 'n lang tydperk aan die Witwatersrand opgebou het, te ontlaai. Dit was tewens 'n episode in die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedenis wat die aandag sterk op sosio-ekonomiese vraagstukke gevestig het. Nadat die Smuts-bewind in 1924 deur generaal Hertzog se Pakt-regering vervang is, is besondere aandag aan hierdie probleme - en veral die lot van die Blanke werker - gegee.' .

Good to very good condition. "The compilers … have to the best of their ability selected illustrations to provide a picture of the history of the Free State in all its aspects up to 1910. The album cannot, of course, pretend to be a self-contained history, but is merely complementary, though it is hoped that it will be a valuable aid in the teaching of the history of our country. It does not go beyond 1910 because in that year the Free State ceased to exist as a separate and independent entity and its history since has been so closely interwoven with that of the Union of South Africa that it can hardly be separated from it." .

An analysis of the schism in the National Party during the early 1980s, which resulted in the formation of Andries Treurnicht's Conservative Party. "Die wegbreek van 'n groep LV's onder leiding van dr. Andries Treurnicht, uit die NP het wye belangstelling ontlok. Hierdie gebeure het die stigting van 'n nuwe party, nl. die Konserwatiewe Party, tot gevolg gehad. Die optrede van hierdie splintergroep is nie ongemotiveerd nie, maar is wel die gevolg van jare se verskille. 'n Gebrek aan eenstemmigheid binne die NP kom reeds 'n lang pad. Dit is dus nie ongehoord… Read more

Die karakters word so werklik dat die leser nie net geboei word nie, maar ook geroer word deur hul lotgevalle. Mev. Frisby en die rotte van NIMH is in 1972 in die V.S.A. bekroon met die gesogte Newbery-medalje." .

Description:
(Nagoya, Japan, United Nations Centre for Regional Development, 1988). Small quarto, card wraps, little scuffed, pp. xvi + 265. 'In recent years, there has been an increasing concern with regional development policies and planning in Africa, in the context of deteriorating or stagnating ational economies. The continued high rates of rural-urban migration, low rates of job creation in the formal sector, a declining local resource base for the supply of facilities and infrastructure, and the deterioration of services have contributed to fiscal distress, stagnatin, and unemployment i the countries. The literature shows that decentralization policies have so far been mainly theoretical; even the role of regions in planning and development has been minimal or nonexistent. Planning and development activities have been excessively centralized. This RRD special issue provides perspectives on urban and regional planning in Africa in the context of socioeconomic change, as well as on the specific problems… Read more

(London, Hamish Hamilton, 1989). Laminated pictorial dustwrapper, pp. (vii) + 232. On Saturday, 5 December, three days after the publication of the 1987 edition of Crockford's Clerical directory, Dr. Gareth Bennett took his own life. It was the climax of an extraordinary press campaign to discover the anonymous author of the Crockford's Preface, which had contained a severe analysis of the current state of the Anglican Church, and an indictment of its leadership. The press hysteria had been fed by a series of pronouncements on the author's character issued by senior clergy.' .

The pictures convey, more powerfully than words ever could, the grief and yet the determination of such people. Because of such pictures, the truth can be conveyed and remembered long after the tears have dried and the people have passed on." - Frank Cikane .

Dustwrapper's spine panel sunned; blistering to front pastedown; label scar to front free endpaper; codes and hand-stamps to endpapers and prelims. Good. "Michael O'Dowd is identified with the 'O'Dowd thesis' which he advanced in 1964 and which held that economic development would eventually destroy apartheid in South Africa. ... Here, in contrast with his earlier writings, he does not deal mainly with economic factors, but focuses on the interrelationship between the economic and the political. The book discusses not only South Africa's 'stages of growth', which it still considers to be significant, but also the country's earlier and recent history, the history, traditions and present day characteristics of the different elements of South Africa's population, as well as South Africa's place in the world.
