A History of Rhodesia By Howard Hensman
Hardcover: $23.95

This is the earliest history of the British colony of Rhodesia. Written only eight years after the first white settlement and based on exclusive access to the files of Cecil John Rhodes’s... More > British South Africa Company, this book became the benchmark for all other works. It is more than the exciting history of the Pioneer Column: it details the tumultuous events of the Matabele Wars, the last stand of Allan Wilson, Rhodes’s personal intervention to the Matabele to halt the fighting, and much more. Written by one of Britain’s leading war correspondents, A History of Rhodesia is a book of its time: unashamedly jingoistic, pro-Empire, anti-Boer and anti-Matabele, it provides a remarkable insight into the personalities and mindset of the builders of the British Empire. “It is, unfortunately, so easy to sit at home in a comfortable arm-chair and pour forth vigorous denunciations on the heads of those of one’s countrymen who are battling with hordes of savages in a distant land.”< Less

REVIEWS: "In re-reading this brilliant essay one should be reminded that the author was only 26 years old at the time and had not been brought up in Africa. Considering that, it is truly... More > remarkable that he could have been so unfashionably 'illiberal' and so insightful into the African psyche." (From the Bantu Education Blog) "He was dead on." "I hope more people read it, and think about how things have turned out." "Excellent summary of the situation as it was at that time." "A fact-packed read that is very hard to digest." "A sobering lengthy read... In Africa today cities and towns that once were models of grace, order, efficiency and development have either turned into sprawling urban crime-ridden slums with gridlocked traffic jams, or are decaying quietly away as the jungle and wilderness slowly reclaim what once was theirs."

More > served in the Second World War and returned to continue life in Rhodesia where he lived until his death in 1977. He writes of the people and animals of the land with a great affection . As a man of insight he could see that unless goodwill prevailed a time of great suffering would come upon all the people. The book was rejected by publishers at the time but in hindsight is a window on the attitudes and values that brought a beautiful land in to a time of suffering. His positive optimism is evident throughout the book and for anyone who has lived in Africa it will bring back memories of the beauty of the land and people. It is a story about a policeman, and a young lad who survived an attack by a leopard, and the extraordinary relationship that resulted between a white MP and an African Nationalist.< Less
