King Khama, Emperor Joe, and the great white queen : Victorian Britain through African eyes by Neil Parsons( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1895 three African chiefs traveled to England to persuade Queen Victoria not to give their lands to Cecil Rhodes. Appealing to the middle-class morality of Victorian society, the chiefs began a tour of the British Isles for their cause. They were remarkably successful in gaining support, eventually swaying Secretary of State for the Colonies Joseph Chamberlain into drafting the agreement that secured their territories against the encroachment of Rhodesia, leading indirectly to the independence of present-day Botswana. Historian Neil Parsons has reconstructed this unusual journey with the help of African archival materials and press clippings from British newspapers, gathered by a clippings service the chiefs had the foresight to employ. A full record of an African Journey of exploration in the nineteenth century, the book provides as well a view from the other side of colonialism and imperialism, and does so with the richness and depth of a fully realized novel
A new history of southern Africa by Neil Parsons( Book )

40 editions published between 1982 and 1994 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Southern African history is now rapidly emerging from long years of partial and blind treatment. The pace of new research and reinterpretation on aspects as diverse as the Pedi, the frontier, migrant labour, social control in urban areas, the origins of the Second Anglo-Boer War, and much else, means that those who attempt to write a school history text must really be on top of their subject. Dr. Parsons has succeeded admirably in conveying the complexities of the Southern African past in a text that is clear and yet comprehensive. This is 'real' history which looks equally at the social, economic and political dimensions of African and European societies and how, from the seventeenth century onwards, they interacted with each other. -- From http://www.jstor.org (Dec. 23, 2016)
