About this deal

While publicly a bon vivant and modest celebrity, Gunther in his private life suffered disappointment and tragedy. Small dampstain on bottom page corners, cloth modestly dampstained, about very good in a very good worn dust jacket with green faded to brown, short nicks on spine ends and corners. There seems to be a disconnect with the Belgians in this book - Gunther seems overwhelmingly positive in spite of the horrendous treatment dished out to the locals. WITH ''The Africans'' David Lamb has produced a timely and valuable work that cuts through many of the distorted images propagated by Africans themselves, by the continent's apologists and by its detractors. The British policy is to educate and train the native Africans for self-government, but they hesitate to have a definite date assigned for that purpose.

The British do not give as much economic opportunity in some realms as the Belgians and perhaps not as much political and racial equality as the French in Black Africa, but the average African in British territory has more copious access to the two things Africans need most — education and justice. slight fading to spine, slight usage soiling to covers, small pencil mark half-title page, otherwise book clean and tight.

This territory comprised the current countries of Central African Republic, the Republic of Congo, Chad and Gabon, and operated from 1910 to 1958, so was nearing its conclusion when Gunther visited. At this time, Morocco consisted of the main body of land Morocco administered by the French; Spanish Morocco; the Tangier International Zone. Indeed the generation which knew and admired Rudyard Kipling succeeded in convincing itself that white imperialism in backward countries was a helping hand to the natives, drawing them out of darkness into light. Slight dent to edge of rear cover, and possibly damp or spill affecting extreme bottom corner of last few pages with crinkling.Please list any fees and grants from, employment by, consultancy for, shared ownership in or any close relationship with, at any time over the preceding 36 months, any organisation whose interests may be affected by the publication of the response.
