26 A Burning Hunger: One Family's Struggle Against Apartheid
Schuster, Lynda Jonathan Cape 2004 0224041681 / 9780224041683 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Original black boards. Both the book and dust jacket are in clean and tight condition. No names, inscriptions or other marks. Pages ever so slightly tanned / darkened. Dust jacket not price clipped. 451pp. On 16 June 1976 the youth of Soweto rose up in protest against a new rule making Afrikaans the language of instruction in their schools. Tsietsi Mashinini, a charismatic high-school student, led them in demonstrations that quickly turned into South Africa?s biggest rebellion. Tsietsi?s actions on that day set in motion a chain of events that forever changed not only the country, but his family as well. From that moment forward, the Mashinini name became the stuff of legends; many of Tsietsi?s 12 siblings and even his parents, law-abiding, church-going citizens, found themselves pulled inexorably into the fight against apartheid. A Burning Hunger tells the story of this remarkable family - a story of black South Africa in microcosm, embracing just about every facet of the liberation struggle. If the Mandelas were the generals in the fight for black liberation, the Mashininis were the foot soldiers. Theirs is a story not only of imprisonment, torture, separation and loss; it also one of dignity, courage and strength in the face of appalling adversity. A Burning Hunger will become one of the seminal books about the struggle against apartheid. The dust jacket is supplied in a loose protective clear film sleeve. 055398

12 Picture Cape Town : Landmarks of a New Generation

In the process they have produced some compelling images, some disturbing ones, and others which are intensely personal.

30 Red Nile: A Biography of the World's Greatest River
Twigger, Robert Weidenfeld & Nicolson London 2013 0297866494 / 9780297866497 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
Hardback with dust jacket. In excellent, fine condition. RRP. 25.00. So much begins on the banks of the Nile: all religion, all life, all stories, the script we write in, the language we speak, the gods, the legends and the names of stars. This mighty river that flows through a quarter of all Africa has been history's greatest and most sustained creator. In this dazzling, idiosyncratic journey from ancient times to the Arab Spring, Robert Twigger weaves a Nile narrative like no other. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. Along the way we meet crocodiles and caliphs, nineteenth-century adventurers and twentieth-century novelists, biblical prophets and classical lovers, dam-builders and crusaders. As he navigates a meandering course through the history of the world's greatest river, he plucks the most intriguing, colourful and dramatic stories - truly a Nile red in tooth and claw. The result is both an epic journey through the whole sweep of human (and pre-human) history, and an intimate biography of the curious life of this great river, overflowing with stories of excess, love, passion, splendour and violence. pp. viii, [6], 466. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. A HEAVY book - a postage surcharge will apply to delivery destinations outside the UK as this book costs more to send than our standard postage rate will cover. NO additional charges for sending within the UK. 302702
