A good first edition hardcover, dark blue cover boards with gold writing to the spine, binding is tight & strong, no marks or inscriptions.This passionate book speaks up for the Bushmen, the original inhabitants of southern Africa, who have been dispossessed and almost exterminated. Now in Botswana's Central Kalahari Game Reserve, they are making their last stand.Facing up to a shameful history, this book celebrates the culture and courage of the first people of Africa, the Bushmen, who, over the past 200 years, have been dispossessed and almost exterminated. In Botswana - miraculously saved by the Mandela government - they are now making their last stand."Sandy Gall, who is best known for his reporting of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, has taken up the cause of the Bushmen. His interest in their plight dates back to the 1950s and 1960s when he was working as a foreign correspondent for Reuters; in 1998 he visited the Central Kalahari for the first time. His book celebrates the culture of these unique people, their amazing affinity with and knowledge of the natural world; and their resilience and sense of humour. He has portrayed many fascinating individuals who have been involved, for good or ill, in their tragic history and their present predicament. Here, for the first time, is the full story of the slaughter of an innocent people. The Bushmen of Southern Africa speaks not only for the Bushmen but for the native indigenous peoples of the world. It faces up to a shameful and bloodstained past and looks at burning current issues such as human rights and the ownership and exploitation of land."
