Pressestimmen

thorough but fair examination Weekend Telegraph a fascinating and learned analysis of the tribe to which I belong, albeit as a renegade member. Financial Times detailed and copiously documented study of (white) Rhodesia Times Higher Education Supplement filled with many valuable observations on an important but neglected aspect of southern African history The Times Peter Godwin and Ian Hancock have produced the best account yet of the death throes of white Rhodesia ... a wholly convincing study of the way white Rhodesians were weakened by their own propaganda. The Economist There are tables on population, occupations and religious affiliations and a remarkable sourcing of evidence, including 62 pages of notes. Margarette Driscoll, Sunday Times The authors ... who write admirably and have done much personal and archival research, give a sympathetic and perceptive analysis of the complicated cross-currents which flowed and of the doubts and misgivings which existed among the whites. Robert Blake, The Spectator a well researched and highly readable account Political Studies Rhodesians Never Die is compulsive reading, extraordinarily well researched and unfortunately for the Rhodies, probably all true. Martin McGhee ... a lively and accessible account based on careful archival research and numerous personal interviews. It makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in contemporary history. Ray Knight. Bundu Times. (Australia) July '93 what is new about this book is its examination of the personal and public needs of Rhodesians to preserve the staus quo in theface of political change, and the costs of trying to maintain segregation while fighting a war.

Synopsis

This book tells the story of how White Rhodesians, three-quarters of whom were ill- prepared for revolutionary change, reacted to the "terrorist" war and the onset of black rule in the 1970s. It shows how internal divisions--both old and new--undermined the supposed unity of White Rhodesia, how most Rhodesians begrudgingly accepted the inevitability of black majority rule without adjusting to its implications, and how the self- appointed defenders of Western civilization sometimes adopted uncivilized methods of protecting the "Rhodesian way of life." This is a lively and accessible account, based on careful archival research and numerous personal interviews. It sets out to tell the story from the inside and to incorporate the diverse dimensions of the Rhodesian experience. The authors suggest that the Rhodesians were more differentiated than has often been assumed and that perhaps their greatest fault was an almost infinite capacity for self- delusion.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fourteen Great Years? 12. Dezember 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"Rhodesians Never Die" is a comprehensive history of the European population that ruled pre-independence Zimbabwe. This book takes a cynical view of Rhodesia's struggle to maintain minority rule amid increasing outside and internal pressures.
Godwin and Hancock put together an amazing amount of information in this work that includes even the smallest detail. "Rhodesians Never Die" chronicles every event, argument, article and demographic affecting Rhodesia for more than a decade.
The only drawback to this exhaustive work is its critical view of Ian Smith and Rhodesia's so called 'way of life'. Reading this book I got the impression that the authors arrived with preconceived conclusions about Rhodesia that weren't supported by their arguments. This could be due in part to the fact that this book does not relate Rhodesians to international influences or to the black population. I would liked to have seen a more classical argument and counter-argument to Rhodesia's problems.
Nonetheless, those who read this book will be greatly surprised to see how moderately the authors portray Rhodesia's Prime Minister. Even though 'Old Smithy' is not shown favorably, he wasn't the extremist as he is so often labelled. That role was played by other segments of Rhodesia's political spectrum.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has read Peter Godwin's "Mukiwa" or would like to learn more about the politics of southern Africa. This book was well worth the wait.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Rhodesia Book 27. Juni 2011
Von J. Smallridge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The writing is pretty flat so it is tough to see how someone without genuine interest in Zimbabwe would care about this book. However, for those of us who are interested, this work has tons of information about the Rhodesian mentality -- cultural, social, political, etc. It also contains a lot about the rise (and fall) of the Rhodesian Front and current President Robert Mugabe. This is one of the better books on southern Africa's history.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A first-rate history 7. August 2015
Von Il Professore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Perhaps a bit opinionated at times, this book is still a readable, well-researched history of a society that is now long gone, but certainly not forgotten. As a historian I appreciate what Godwin and Hancock achieved in this book.
