Ashes and Snow: New York Exhibition Catalog
Gregory Colbert (Photographer)
0974698105
April 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Gregory Colbert's photographic artworks capture extraordinary moments of contact between man and animal. Gregory Colbert has spent thirteen years filming and photographing elephants, whales, birds, and other animals in such places as India, Burma, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Namibia, Egypt, the island of Dominica, Tonga, and Antarctica. Ashes and Snow, Colbert's lifelong project, is a collaboration with animals in their natural habitat as they interact with human beings. His images attempt to remove the boundaries between humans and other species—to re-awaken in us an understanding of our shared animal nature. The New York exhibition catalog collects more than 190 images from the U.S. debut of Ashes and Snow on Pier 54 in New York City (March 5–June 6, 2005). The books were printed and bound in Italy; the...


Re-Examining Liberation in Namibia: Political Culture Since Independence
Henning Melber (Editor)
9171065164
February 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
From 1960, SWAPO of Nami-bia led the organised and later armed struggle for indepen-dence. In late 1989, the libera-tion movement was finally elected to power under United Nations supervision as the legitimate government. When the Republic of Namibia was proclaimed on 21 March 1990, the long and bitter struggle for sovereignty came to an end. This volume takes stock of emerging trends in the country's political culture since independence. The contributions, mainly by authors from Namibia and Southern Africa who supported the anti-colonial movements, critically explore the achieve-ments and shortcomings that have been part of liberation in Namibia. Henning Melber was Director of the Namibian Economic Policy Research Unit (NEPRU) in Windhoek between 1992 and 2000 and has been Research Director at The Nordic Africa...

Histories of Namibia. Living Through the Liberation Struggle
Colin Leys
085036499X
Aug 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This collection of oral histories reveals the struggles of 10 Namibians in surviving 23 years of war and moving forward with their lives in the aftermath. As this book reveals, though most had endured hardship and hunger and witnessed terrible cruelty and suffering, their outlooks were triumphant and optimistic, and their stories are full of enthusiasm, energy, determination, and purpose. These inspiring stories are representative of a whole generation of Namibians who matured in the struggle, becoming skilled, disciplined, cosmopolitan, and tough.

About the Author
Colin Leys is an emeritus professor of political science at Queen's University. Susan Brown is a reporter on Southern Africa and lives in Cape Town, South Africa.

Review
“Emmanuel Kreike presents a socio-enviromental history of the Ovambo floodplains through this historical case-study of the region of Oukwanyama from the 1880s to 1960. In many ways the book is a history of the evolution of the modern Angolan-Namibian borderlands. It traces large-scale population movements from southern Angola to northern Namibia, and the rapid socioeconomic as well as environmental transformations that occurred in the wake of colonial and mission expansion of Portuguese, German, South African and Finnish origins. An important focus of the book are 'transformation histories' in local memory, of individuals and households.”–Journal of African History

Lost White Tribes : The End of Privilege and the Last Colonials in Sri Lanka, Jamaica, Brazil, Haiti, Namibia, and Guadeloupe
Riccardo Orizio
0743211979
July 10, 2001
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Ever wonder what became of that unfortunate Belgian clerk in Conrad's Heart of Darkness, who insisted upon wearing a starched collar despite the stifling Congo heat? Italian journalist Orizio shows that he may well have stayed on. Like Ryszard Kapuscinski, who provides a brief foreword, Orizio has a wonderful eye for cultural anachronisms and uncovers colonial remains in the form of white enclaves in Third World settings. His six subcultural portraits follow a similar pattern (which by no means detracts from their appeal), personalized by his subjects' discussions of their peculiar insider/outsider position. The opening chapter takes Orizio to Sri Lanka, where he contacts the remnants of the Dutch community, a group that originally arrived some 400 years ago with the Dutch East India Company and, for whatever...
