RHODESIA: THE ROAD TO REBELLION., Barber, James.
2 Barber, James. RHODESIA: THE ROAD TO REBELLION.
Oxford University Press / Institute of Race Relations, London, 1967, first edition. 
338 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "As a result of the dramatic Unilateral Declaration of Independence by Ian Smith and his Cabinet in November 1965, Rhodesia is now the centre of an international crisis, a focal point in a rapidly changing scene. But the act should not be seen as an isolated incident; it is part of a political and constitutional pattern which has developed gradually, and of which the outstanding feature is the division between Europeans and Africans. In thi s careful and thorough study Mr. Barber traces the various strands which make up this pattern, analysing the origins of this tragically divided society and its relations with the rest of Southern Africa, and giving a detailed account of the politi c a l developments since 1960 which culminated in the U.D.I." Previous owner's place, date and signature on free front endpaper; light wrinkling at bottom of spine; light edge wear. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear, a few small/tiny tea rs , a few tiny chips, light browning - mainly on inside of spine, some light edge wrinkling. Very Good/Good+

Chicago Quadrangle Books 1968 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good- 
184 pp, 8 1/2" H. "Mr. Bull, editor of the 'Central African Examiner' (one of Salisbury's leading magazines before it ceased publication late in 1965 as a result of rigid censorship by the Rhodesian government), presents the first authoritative explanation of the Rhodesian situation. Most of his book is a factual account of the important political, social, and economic changes in Britain's colony from the first European settlement to the present day (1967), with particular attention to the separate develop-ment of the racial communities. The second part of the book is an assessment of British policy before and after Rhodesia's Universal Declaration, and the likely outcome of the present deadlock."

Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has light to moderate wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light fading/browning on spine, very small tear at top of front panel - archivally taped, some light rubbing with color loss on rear panel.

THE SPIRITUAL MANDELA:  FAITH AND RELIGION IN THE LIFE OF NELSON MANDELA., Cruywagen, Dennis.  (Nelson Mandela.)
4 Cruywagen, Dennis. (Nelson Mandela.) THE SPIRITUAL MANDELA: FAITH AND RELIGION IN THE LIFE OF NELSON MANDELA.
Watertown, MA Imagine 2018 1623545307 / 9781623545307 First American Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good+ 
224 pp, 9 1/4" H. "Nelson Mandela revealed nothing about his personal religious beliefs in his writings or in his public pronouncements. He purposely avoided discussing them in his autobiography for political reasons, but those who were closest to him knew he held Christian views. At Mandela's request, the final components of his funeral followed the Methodist service. 'The Spiritual Mandela' explores the ways in which Nelson Mandela balanced Christianity with traditional African beliefs and with his political views, and how he reconciled his faith with the fact that religion had often been used as a tool to oppress his people. (The author) traces the spiritual aspects of Mandela's life from his youth in a Thembu village, to his education at Wesleyan and Methodist mission schools, to his time as an activist, his incarceration on Robben Island, and the years thereafter." A few very tiny dents on bottom edge of boards. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, minor rubbing.

POPULAR DISTURBANCES IN ENGLAND 1700-1870., Stevenson, John.
5 Stevenson, John. POPULAR DISTURBANCES IN ENGLAND 1700-1870.
Longmans, London, 1979, first edition. 
374 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0582483255 "In this book, the first sustained and integrated study of popular disturbances over the long period that links the age of oligarchy with the late Victorian, Dr Stevenson uses his own research and the work of other historians to examine the causes and character of such disturbances, and their relationship with social and economic change. The breadth of treatment, from eighteenth century election riots through the movements o f which the Luddites and the Chartists are only the most familiar to the crises of the later nineteenth century, allows Dr Stevenson to uncover and explore long-term patterns in popular discontent, and to set individual outbreaks in a wider c o n t e x t . He devotes particular attention to price and wage riots, to the London 'mob', to the development of new forms of popular protest, and to the overall distribution and significance of these movements. In his introduction, he discus s es s om e of t he m ethodological problems presented by the subject, and gives a critical appraisal of various approaches to it. He concludes with an examination of the role of popular disturbances in English society and their political signif ic anc e, bot h in ter ms of the 'politics of protest' and the threat of revolution in industrialising Britain." Previous owner's small stamp on front pastedown, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very small faint mark on top of textblock. Du st jack et very m ino r ed ge wea r, minor edge wrinkling, very light rubbing, very small scuff on front panel. Very Good+/Very Good
