RHODESIA: CRISIS OF COLOR.  (COLOUR)., Bull, Theodore.  Introduction by Gwendolen M. Carter.
1 Bull, Theodore. Introduction by Gwendolen M. Carter. RHODESIA: CRISIS OF COLOR. (COLOUR).
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." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny faint water mark on top of text block; previous owner's signature, name and date on free front endpaper. 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. 
Price: 20.00 USD
