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:
(Bloemfontein: Associated Periodicals Limited, 1954). 4to; original green cloth with gilt coat of arms on upper cover; illustrated endpaper map; pp. xxiv + 154 + [xxv - xliv]; profusely illustrated with manuscript facsimiles and many photographic reproductions of historic personages, events and places, including a little colour; advertisements. 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." .

(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.' .

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

Description:
(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.' .

"Cricket and Conquest is simply the finest book ever written about sport in South Africa. It should sit alongside the works of CLR James and Ramachandra Guha in the library of every cricket lover. For the first time Odendaal, Reddy, Merrett and Winch tell the complete and unvarnished story of South African cricket: black and white and people called coloured, male and female. They have left no archive unexamined and no story unscrutinised in their quest for the truth. This book is not only a major work of scholarship, it is a work of passion: for cricket, for social justice and for a history that includes all those who ever swung a bat or bowled a ball." - Prof Tony Collins, former Director of the International Centre for Sports History and Culture at De Montfort University .

"The African National Congress was founded a hundred years ago, in January 1912. But the roots of the ANC run even deeper in South African history. For fifty years before it was formed, a remarkable group of African intellectuals, activists and organisations prepared the way by standing up for African rights in the new colonial world. Their story has been painstakingly recovered by André Odendaal, who has pieced together their astonishing achievements and the broad, inclusive vision they proposed for the future. Without knowing their story, one cannot properly understand South Africa today, or the immense legacy they left with their deep-rooted tradition of African constitutionalism." .

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 .

"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.

More than 1800 painters and sculptors are listed alphabetically, the criteria for inclusion being artists who have lived or worked in South Africa/Namibia and who have made a lasting contribution to its artistic life.

(London, Hutchinson, 2002). 8vo; original black boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. xvi + 208; black-and-white photographic illustrations in text. Near fine condition. As read on BBC Radio 4. "When the Japanese invaded the beautiful Indonesian island of Java during the Second World War Clara Kelly was four years old. Her family was separated - her father was sent to work on the Burma railway, and she together with her mother and her two brothers, one a six-week-old baby, were sent to a 'women's camp'. They were interned there until the end of the war. Clara's descriptions of the appalling deprivations and impersonal brutality of the camp - standing in the baking heat for hours of 'tenko' roll call, living on one cup of rice a day - are countered by the courage and resilience shown by all the internees, most poignantly her own mother. Remarkable too is the way the children, Clara and her elder brother, and their friends keep their spirits high, finding ways… Read More
