RHODESIAN PERSPECTIVE., Bull, Theodore, editor.
1 Bull, Theodore, editor. RHODESIAN PERSPECTIVE.
Michael Joseph, London, 1967, first edition. 
184 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Map endpapers, fold-out map showing land apportionment in 1965. "The first and major portion of this book consists of a factual account of some of the more important political, social and economic developments in Britain's colony of Southern Rhodesia from the time of the first European occupation to the present day. It draws on historical records, official reports and government statements to explain what the Land Apportionment Act is, why it was introduced, and what its practical effects are; to examine local government, the educational systems, and economic development in urban and rural areas; to analyse the effect which some of the past and present legislation has on the living a n d working conditions of black and white Rhodesians; and, in the process, to illustrate the political attitudes of Europeans and Africans, and the separate development of the racial communities. (It) collates much of the kind of factual material w hi ch used to appear regularly in the Salisbury journal, the 'Central African Examiner', before it ceased publication. UDI and the censorship imposed under the Emergency regulations in November, 1965, resulted in the 'Examiner's' December issue bei ng heavily cut - about half the material submitted for censorship was banned. The journal's publishing company launched a court case to challenge the legality of censorship and so, by implication, of the Rhodesian regime, but this was unsuccessful and the December 1965 issue was therefore (its) last. The factual material in this book was prepared by former contributors to the 'Examiner' and edited by Theodore Bull, the sponsor and former editor of the journal. His own personal assessment o f Br itish policy on Rhodesia, before and since UDI, and the likely outcome of the present deadlock, forms the second part of the book. His conclusions are controversial, and readers of widely differing political views could be equally shocked by t hem, but they may stimulate a healthy reassessment of attitude towards the whole unhappy Rhodesian situation." Previous owner's place, date and signature on free front endpaper; slight bump at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrink ling, slight browning on spine and flap-folds, very light rubbing. Very Good/Very Good-

RHODESIA: CRISIS OF COLOR.  (COLOUR)., Bull, Theodore.  Introduction by Gwendolen M. Carter.
2 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.

RHODESIA IN 'REBELLION'., Sparrow, Gerald.
3 Sparrow, Gerald. RHODESIA IN 'REBELLION'.
London Knightly Vernon 1966 Soft Cover Good 
74 pp, 8 3/8" H. "The tragic dispute between the British and Rhodesian authorities arising out of Rhodesia's assumption of independence on November 11th, 1965, has provoked great interest in Rhodesia, in Britain, throughout the Commonwe alth, in the United States, as well as in Europe and Africa. - Mr Ian Smith, when he came to London just before independence, in an effort to arrive at an amicable settlement, appeared on television and the public formed the impression that here was a man wholly sincere, who might be mistaken, but who was forthright and honest. The British public, who had been suffering from some exceptionally acrobatic politicians, noted the difference, and Smith won many friends. - The men of the regime in Salisbury were openly called 'rebels' by Mr Wilson in Britain. This was the first time, since the United States declared her own indpendence of Britain, that a colony had taken independence from Britain instead of being granted its freedom. It was an historic occasion and act and I knew that I was embarked on a journey to see a new nation in revolt at the moment of destiny. - So this book has one simple objective: to tell in simple terms the story of my visit, what I saw, the judgments I formed. The opinions expressed are, of course, entirely my own. If the reader of this book feels that he knows far more about 'the rebels' and their way of life, their roots, their faith and their ambitions after finishing this book, this will be its justification. The time I spent on this journey was perhaps the most exciting and revealing fortnight of my life. I will try to give you an account that enables you to share this adventure with me." Interior - previous owner's name, place and signature on title page; otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - light wear at top/bottom of spine, light rubbing, very light edge wear/wrinkling, very small corner creases, slight browning - mainly on spine, soft crease on rear cover, a few tiny soiling specks - mainly on rear cover. 
Price: 30.00 USD
 
 
RHODESIA., Todd, Judith.
4 Todd, Judith. RHODESIA.
London MacGibbon & Kee 1966 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good - Good+ 
170 pp, 8 3/4" H. "Judith Todd sets out some facts on the origins of the dispute over Rhodesia (the current Zimbabwe). As the daughter of a former Prime Minister she is in a good position to know part of the story from the inside. Her father is now 'restricted' by an order made by an illegal government. Miss Todd was brought up on a mission station in Rhodesia and while she understands perfectly well the European achievement in this part of Africa, she has seen also that it is not enough. Not at least while the great majority of the population is thwarted politically and socially underprivileged to an extreme degree. Their leaders are cajoled, penalised; their sympathisers are made victims of the most crude political enmity - amounting almost to hysteria. Miss Todd is devoted to the best and long-lasting aspirations of this beautiful country. She can, therefore, bear the revilement that the friends of the misguided and ultimately doomed Rhodesian government have to offer. Patriotism may well not be enough; but justicce and freedom are necessary foundations to any patriotism deserving of the name." Chapter headings: 'The Police and the Army are Ready'; In the Beginning; The Essence of Discrimination; Right Turn Ahead; Sowing the Seeds; Where the Banished Ones Sleep; White Myths and Black Realities; Civilised Standards; Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness; 'The Respect for the Opinions of Mankind'; Happy New Year!; Not the End of the World; The Consent of the Governed. Previous owner's signature, place and date in ink on front free endpaper, scattered tiny light foxing marks on rear endpapers and on edges of text block, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling, a few very tiny edge chips and tears, light browning at edges, several scuff marks on front panel and on spine , light rubbing, two tiny dents on spine.
