  An Eloquent Picture Gallery: The South African Portrait Photographs of Gustav Theodor Fritsch, 1863-1865 - Keith Hamilton Dietrich, Andrew Bank (2008)   Bringing to life a unique cultural gallery of both known and unknown figures of the early 1860s with an astonishing veracity, this remarkable photographic collection is a visual documentation of South Africas people. Aesthetically stunning and of surprising technical quality for the period taken, this intriguing collage represents the life work of 25-year-old German doctor and anthropologist Gustav Fritsch, who utilized the relatively new photographic medium to complement his scientific expedition to the South African landscape. Reflecting how the native tribes remained untouched by the social and industrial revolution around them, and accompanied by essays that set in context Fritschs outlook on racial discovery and theory, this invaluable photographic insight is an artistic and historically significant addition to South Africas cultural heritage. Authors      Keith Hamilton Dietrich, Andrew Bank (2008) ISBN          1770096418, 9781770096417 Format       Paperback Pages        176p.

Initially not selected for the 1906 tour, he was included at the last moment due to an injury to another player. He captained the 1912 Springboks on the second tour to Europe and was the first man to take a Springbok head on tour with the team! An outstanding boxer and walker, he did not allow a Boer War wound deter him from playing sport. Millar's book provides unbiased commentary on many of the games of the 1906/12 tours. Despite being severely wounded in World War I, he continued to serve rugby in SA in his later years.

This item is sold brand new. It is ordered on demand from our supplier and is usually dispatched within 4 - 8 working days In the first half of the nineteenth century, Southern Africa was a jumble of British colonies, Boer republics and African chiefdoms, a troublesome region of little interest to the outside world. Into this frontier world came the Reitz family, Afrikaner gentry from the Cape, who settled in Bloemfontein and played a key role in the building of the Orange Free State. Frank Reitz, successively chief justice and modernising president of the young republic, went on to serve as State Secretary of the Transvaal Republic. In 1899, he stood shoulder to shoulder with President Paul Kruger to resist Britain's war of conquest in Southern Africa. At the heart of this tale is the extraordinary life of Deneys Reitz, third son of Frank Reitz and Bianca Thesen. The young Reitz's account of his adventures in the field during the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902), published as Commando, became a classic of irregular warfare. After a period of exile in Madagascar, he went on become one of South Africa's most distinguished lawyers, statesmen and soldiers. Martin Meredith interweaves Reitz's experiences, taken from his unpublished notebooks, with the wider story of Britain's brutal suppression of Boer resistance. Concise and readable, Afrikaner Odyssey is a wide-ranging portrait of an aristocratic Afrikaner family whose achievements run like fine thread through these turbulent times, and whose presence is still marked on the South African landscape.

UNISA, 2005. Soft cover. 58 pages. Good, clean condition. Corners have some wear. Under 1kg. The new Hidden Histories Series, "The Making of an African Communist: Edwin Thabo Mofutsanyana and the Communist Party of South Africa 1927 - 1939" by Bob Edgar edited by Raymond Suttner. Phil Bonner, Head: History Department, University of the Witwatersrand had this to say: This work makes a very important contribution to the understanding of opposition politics in the interwar period. It is based almost exclusively on original research by the author, including extensive interviews with Mofutsanyana. It throws new light on the internal politics of the Communist Party, in particular the relationship between blacks and whites in the organisation. It also gives a personal and political portrait of an important African leader about whom very little has been published.

1st Edition 2001.. The Winds of Havoc - A Memoir of Adventure and Destruction in Deepest Africa (Hardcover) Adelino Serras Pires Book is in fair condition. Pages clean clear & bright. Binding not very good and can be easily restored. Owners name to front page. Hardcover The winds of Havoc: a memoir of adventure and destruction in deepest Africa by Adelino Serras Pires as told to Fiona Claire Capstick. An account of big game hunting, throughout Africa, but most often in Mozambique and some other countries, at a time there was political & military upheaval. New York, St. Martin’s Press, 2001.  First   edition. 8vo. Pp. xv,(1,1),265, black / white photo-plates, portraits, map. Previous owner’s signature inside front cover. When eight-year-old Adelino Serras Pires first arrived on a boat from Portugal in 1936, Mozambique was a tropical paradise, where native tribes and Portuguese colonists lived in harmony, and vast jungles held the promise of endless excitement. A few months into Adelino's new life, his father took him along on a successful hunt for maneating lions that had been terrorizing the countryside. From that point on, Adelino's destiny was sealed: He would spend his days in the African bush, hunting for a living, and living for adventure. After a childhood wrought with thrilling episodes, Adelino became a major safari organizer with a client list comprised of African royalty, European dignitaries and wealthy Americans alike. Soon, though, tribes across the continent began to rebel against European control. In Mozambique, the Frelimo party, bent on ousting the Portuguese colonists, launched guerilla attacks throughout the land. Such attacks resulted in the violent death and injuries of several safari clients, and Adelino was forced to pack up his operations. What follows is a frightening look at a continent under siege. As Adelino moved throughout sub-Saharan Africa-- each time resuming his life's ambition-- he repeatedly witnessed the violence and horror of civil war. Like a hunter stalking its prey, it was only a matter of time before the forces of revolution brought him down, too. That day came when Adelino, his son, his nephew, and a fellow hunter were abducted in Tanzania and turned over to the secret police in now-- Frelimo-controlled Mozambique. In hair-raising detail, Adelino recounts months of torture and interrogation in a Mozambique prison, which almost cost him his life, and the traitorous circumstances that landed him there. "The Winds of Havoc" is the story of Adelino's steady disillusionment, as the beauty of Africa slowly gave way to political turmoil and corruption. But more than that, it's a moving portrait of a life and time that are now gone forever.

 Paperback / Good condition In February 2002, British journalist James Brabazon set out to travel with guerrilla forces into Liberia to show the world what was happening in that war-torn country. To protect him, he hired Nick du Toit, a former South African Defence Force soldier who had fought in conflicts across Africa for over three decades. What follows is an incredible behind-the-scenes account of the Liberian rebels — known as the LURD — as they attempt to seize control of the country from government troops led by President Charles Taylor. In this gripping narrative, James Brabazon paints a brilliant portrait of the chaos that tore West Africa apart: nations run by warlords and kleptocrats, rebels fighting to displace them, ordinary people caught in the crossfire — and everywhere adventurers and mercenaries operating in war's dark shadows. It is a brutally honest book about what it takes to be a journalist, survivor, and friend in this morally corrosive crucible.

The Relatively Public Life of Jules Browde I sat there divided. Though my grandfather was visibly shaken by the force of this memory, and I knew I was seeing him more vulnerable than I had ever seen him, I felt a bubbly thrill because this was such good stuff, and I remember turning my eyes away from his distressed face to make sure the wheels of the dictaphone were still turning. When Daniel is tasked with writing the biography of his grandfather, Jules Browde - one of South Africa's most celebrated advocates - he sharpens his pencil and gets to work. But the task that at first seems so simple comes to overwhelm him. As the book begins to recede - month after month, year after year - he must face the possibility of disappointing his grandfather, whose legacy now rests uncomfortably in his hands. The troubled progress of Daniel's book stands in sharp contrast to the clear-edged tales his grandfather tells him. Spanning almost a century, these gripping stories compellingly conjure other worlds: the streets of 1920s Yeoville, the battlefields of the Second World War, the courtrooms of apartheid South Africa. The Relatively Public Life of Jules Browde turns the conventions of a biography inside out. It is more than the portrait of an unusual South African life, it is the moving tale of a complex and tender relationship between grandfather and grandson, and an exploration of how we are made and unmade in the stories we tell about our lives. Author Daniel Browde ISBN 9781868427208 Format Paperback Pages 310p.

Dorps: Small Towns of South Africa is about a part of ¿Old Africa¿ that is quickly disappearing.For many years, Roger Ballen, an American, has travelled widely throughout South Africa, visiting its scattered towns and villages. During this time he has developed a unique vision toward little-known corners and artifacts, trading stores, old houses and humble people. Textured with time, these photographs reveal the essence of these places.The vision is pure. It is direct. It does not rely upon photographic processing tricks. We can only marvel that the most commonplace subject matter becomes poetic, and that the fragment becomes an artistic unit. Perhaps no more intimate portrait exists of these towns.Looked at as a cumulative affirmation of an artist¿s vision and intention, these images define a body of work which is surely one of the purest and strongest aesthetic statements ever made in South African photography.Price: R2500.00Edition: First EditionPublished: 1986Publishers: Clifton PublicationsISBN: 0620092114 / 9780620092111Condition: Dustjacket is in good condition with a very small chips at the spine, and minor scuff marks on the corners - now covered in a protective plastic sleeve.

 Big men, little people - Alec Russell - 2000 - Paperback in good, clean and tight condition. The Sixties were a heady time for Africans. All over the continent colonial flags were being lowered and Africans looked forward to freedom and a glittering future. But for most of the continent the last forty years have been a shattering experience. Since independence Africans have been terribly betrayed by the Europeans, the superpowers, and tragically, by their own leaders. Can a new generation of leaders turn the tide? Will they learn from their predecessors' mistakes and fuel a new African renaissance? Or is Africa doomed to further decades of turmoil? In this witty and informative book, Alec Russell answers these questions by telling the stories of his encounters with Africa's Big Men. Each one represents a theme which has shaped the continent: Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire, the "King of Kleptocracy" whose staggering corruption crippled Zaire; Jonas Savimbi, the life-long guerrilla and symbol of the Cold War's destructive legacy on the continent; the quixotic Hastings Banda, the ultimate product of colonialism; and, of course, Nelson Mandela, symbol of reconciliation and hope for an entire continent. By any measure, this has been a terrible century for Africa. However Russell detects signs of hope in the fledgling human rights troupe he encounters deep in the steamy heart of the Congolese jungle and in the group of journalists keeping Moi's tottering regime in Kenya on its toes. Big Men, Little People is a vividly written portrait of a continent, which avoids the usual stereotypes and dire prophecies and entertains from start to finish.
