Requiem for Rhodesia
By Carlos Porter
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 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."
(From the New Rhodesian Forum)
This was a print on demand book from Lulu.com, but on 22nd December 2017 they closed down Carlos Porters account as it didn't comply with their 'policies' and currently he has no method of printing any more books. E bay and Amazon have already closed his accounts earlier in 2017, so they are now only available from Konig Books, with whatever we have in stock.
We are sorry to say that because of the new scarcity of availability until a new printer can be found, the price of these books will need to double, as this is his only income and he is now in his late 80's. As soon as a new printer is found, the prices will go back to normal. Konig Books sincerely apologise for this situation. If you know of a Printer that is prepared to print this range of books, please contact us.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT POSTAGE COSTS
- If you are OUTSIDE the UK, you will only be charged ONE delivery fee for each order, no matter how many products you order. You will NOT be charged a delivery fee for EACH ITEM.
- Also, If the ACTUAL postage charge to your country is LESS than the amount you have paid, you will be refunded the difference after posting. The reason for this, is that Shopify cannot differentiate the weight of a book from the weight of a men's tie; so there is one standard delivery charge paid PER ORDER.
- For Example: If you buy 2 books and 1 tie, you will pay ONLY ONE postage charge, and if the actual cost is less after posting, the difference will be refunded.
