Manual for Justices of the Peace in the Union of South Africa / Handleiding Vir Vrederegters in Die Unie Van Suid-Afrika
(Pretoria: Government Printer, 1939). . English subtitle: 'Containing: In Part I. General Observations on the nature of their office and the scope of their functions, and, In Part II. Information in alphabetical subject order, as to their powers and duties under the laws of the Union and of the Provinces.' 8vo; original brown cloth, lettered in black to spine and boards, with coat-of-arms of the Union of South Africa to either board; pp. 133 + 139. Bilingual text: English from one end, and Afrikaans from the other. Cloth a bit mottled and partially fishmothed; hand-stamp of the Magistrate of Postmasburg in several places; some foxing. Good condition. Uncommon. "Act No. 16 of 1914 effected a radical change in the nature of the position by combining with it the powers and functions of the important office of field-cornet. This ancient office disappears, and its varied functions, chiefly of an executive and non-judicial character, are now conferred upon the official who, for the area corresponding to the field-cornetcy or ward for which the field-cornet exercised his functions, holds the office of justice of the peace. It may be observed that the title of field-cornet is now frequently applied to the second officer of a rifle association.".

Tribes & Kingdoms
(Cape Town: Don Nelson, 1987) 0909238863. . 279 x 215 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 80, incl. index; profusely illustrated with maps and contemporary illustrations, several of which in full colour. Wrappers very slightly rubbed; bump to bottom fore-corner; occasional faint fox spot. Very good condition. "In Southern Africa the 19th century saw the rise and fall of the mighty Zulu empire, and the breaking away of Shaka's warrior, Mzilikazi, to forge his own powerful Ndebele (Matabele) nation in the interior. During the Difaqane, marauding tribes like the 'Mantatees' led by the Tlokwa warrior queen Mmanthatisi scattered more peaceful peoples and cut a swathe of destruction and suffering across the sub-continent. A wise chief named Moshweshwe built a new Basotho nation with diplomacy and courage, while in the south the Xhosa-speaking tribes - who had been the first to come face to face with the Dutch and the British - struggled to keep their independence. A complex century of colonisation has been admirably analysed and condensed to provide a highly readable and informative overview of a crucial area in South African history. A series of freshly drawn maps further clarifies a history concerned with the shaping and breaking of many different nations and empires. Numerous illustrations, many in full colour, bring to life the vanished faces and costumes of a remarkable century.".

The Religious Smuts
(Cape Town: Human & Rousseau, 1994) 0798137896. . 8vo; laminated pictorial boards; pp. 111. Bump to head of spine; boards very slightly rubbed; three lines of text highlighted on p. 24. Very good condition. 'In reply to a question on what he saw as the purpose of life, General Jan Smuts once said: "You live and you exist to glorify your God who created you, that is the purpose of your life." Despite this deep belief in God as the Creator of mankind, Smuts was often accused of being an atheist, especially after the publication of his book Holism and Evolution in 1926. The Religious Smuts looks at the role religion played in the great statesman's philosophic and scientific thinking and shows how deeply Smuts saw and experienced the hand of God in his own life and in the destiny of mankind as a whole. Piet Beukes, who worked closely with Smuts during the last twelve years of his life, says that Smuts's personal religion was based entirely on the Bible and specifically the New Testament, which he used to read in the original Greek. It is true that Smuts never liked church dogma but he was searching all through his life for the true meaning of religion and faith in God.'.

Graham Botha's Collected Works, we have brought together sixty-six of his most important shorter historical works." - From the Editor's Note. "The record of Dr. C. Graham Botha is that of a busy, useful and industrious life, during which he achieved much. The South African Archives may undoubtedly be considered a monument to his work, as they certainly were his creation in the first instance. He has, withal, throughout his life remained a humble and unassuming man, to whom the advancement of the Archives mattered at all times more than his own personal prestige." - From the Biographical Introduction by R. F. M. Immelman.

Public Policy and White Rural Poverty in South Africa, 1881-1924
(Ontario, PhD thesis in unpublished form, 1990). . A thesis submitted to the Department of History in conformity with the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Folio (300 x 210 mm); original red rexine gilt; pp. (iv) + iv + 425 (printed rectos). Fine condition. Important PhD thesis submitted to the History Department of Queen's University (Kingston, Ontario, Canada). The author is currently Associate Professor and Head of the History Department at North-West University, South Africa. 'No major work has been published on "poor whiteism" during the last fifty years. This lacunae exists, despite the fact that "poor whiteism" straddles the three major political relationships in South Africa, white and black, English-speaking and Afrikaner, prosperous and poor. In those works which refer to "poor whiteism", three distinct views emerge. Nationalist historians see the "poor whites" as victims, whilst liberal historians portray the "poor whites" as historical "culprits". The focus of the revisionists on the material base of society has led them to conclude that the "poor whites" were an irrelevant class. In contrast to these approaches, this thesis would reassert the fundamental importance of "poor whiteism" in the development of South Africa.' An abstract of the same author's article The application of the theory of "economic backwardness" to South Africa 1881-1924 in the The South African Journal of Economic History (Volume 8, No 2, October 1993), which covers similar ground, states: "He argues that the revisionist, liberal and Afrikaner nationalist interpretations are flawed because they provide insular, monotheistic explanations of growth that cannot portray the true complexity of South Africa's development. He suggests that the theory of economic backwardness offers important historical insights into South Africa's development.".

Extremities a little rubbed; earlier owner's name signed on front free endpaper; tape marks to endpapers; occasional highlighting in pencil. Good condition. Afrikaans text. (Nienaber I, p. 74) The author's stance is that capitalistic thinking can be likened to the tyranny of the Catholic Church during the Reformation, and that rampant individualism is damaging to society. In the wake of the Carnegie Commission report on South Africa's Poor White problem, which he analyses in some detail, he argues for an abandonment of class-consciousness..

'Readers who have come to expect of Jose Burman entertainingly told home truths about history will not be disappointed with this volume. In this book the author has gathered humorous incidents of South African history, from Jan van Riebeeck to the Boer War. Wittily illustrated by Jackson, these little-known facets of history not only throw light on the past, but make amusing and interesting reading. Here you will meet Noah's Wildebeest, the baboon that sounded the Castle alarm, the Battalion of Illegitimates, and the horse "Cracker" that broke in recruits for the Natal Mounted Police; you will learn how Anders Sparrman made "snake-juice", of the night Sir John Barrow was saved by a Hottentot girl's steatopygia, how the Royal Navy drank tea instead of rum, Prince Alfred's adventures at Howick, and much besides. So, in the author's word, "join in enjoying a laugh at History".'.

Dustwrapper a bit rubbed and edgeworn, with earlier owner's tape repairs to reverse; gift inscription to front free endpaper; some foxing to edges and endpapers, occasional fox spot elsewhere. Good condition. "In this book Jose Burman deals with the disasters which have studded the fantastic expansion of this country - disasters from which some lands might never have recovered, but which scarcely marred the progress of South Africa. Some disasters changed the history of the land: the killing of the Xhosa cattle broke the power of that nation, and opened the way to peaceful expansion of the Cape Colony's borders; the great fire of 1869, by destroying the indigenous forest that barred the way to the early travellers, allowed the completion of the coastal road system that created the Garden Route... But this book is not a mere catalogue of past horrors - it carries a message of hope for the future. The author shows how misfortune brings out the best in people, and describes the response to the challenge by those South Africans who have stood firm in the face of disaster.".

Regional Integration in Southern Africa: Comparative International Perspectives
(Johannesburg, South African Institute of International Affairs, 2001). . 239 x 164 mm; laminated pictorial wraps; pp. (viii) + 241; tables. Fine condition. "Regional integration is based on common assumptions about political institutions and frameworks. It is also generally accepted as a stepping stone to wider global economic involvement and competitiveness. In Southern Africa, SADC and Comesa are the vehicles for integrating states, all of which have different political and economic experiences. This volume traces the process of Southern African integration, comparing it with international experiences in Europe, Asia and Latin America. Integration in Southern Africa is made difficult not only because of economic difference, but also because of war. Contributors from Singapore, Malawi, Britain and the Nordic countries, amongst others, examine these issues as well as questions of conditionality, variable geometry and how regional bodies relate to one another.".

Allan Hendrickse, Verhoorafwagtende

"In 1984 is Allan Hendrickse weer eens 'n verhoorafwagtende, maar hierdie keer nie agter tralies nie. Nou word hy geoordeel in die felle lig van die openbare politiek. Van sy voormalige party- en bondgenote het hom reeds geoordeel. Soos in 1976 veroordeel sommige van di selfaangestelde politieke regters hom nou ook sonder dat hy geleentheid het om homself te verdedig. Hulle is nie bereid om te vra of te luister waarheen Allan Hendrickse onder die nuwe bedeling op pad is nie. Hulle is ook nie bereid om hom 'n geleentheid te bied om te toon waartoe hy in staat is nie. Ook word hy, byvoorbaat, saam met di wat hom wel 'n geleentheid wil gun om uiteindelik 'n menswaardige bestaan en volwaardige bydrae tot die politieke lewe en die toekoms van Suid-Afrika te maak, veroordeel. Uit regste kringe word hy steeds van radikalisme, en ondergrawing van Blanke-'heiligdomme' beskuldig. Sommige het reeds 'n etiket om sy nek gehang: brandpunt van die magte wat die 'ondergang' van die Blanke wil bewerkstellig.".
