Great Zimbabwe: Described and Explained

£14.99

Product description

This booklet is sold at the Great Zimbabwe site and is both a guide book and a history, as far as it is known, of the ruins. It must be noted that the current regime in Zimbabwe was very anxious to counteract the colonial ideology which had influenced the study of the region, this book may be equally culpable of distortion.
The paper cover shows 5 of the 7 Zimbabwe Bird carvings in black and white on a red background. There are very minor scuffs on the colourful, glossy cover from typical use, and a neatly-written date "22/06/01" marks the title page, but the text is clear on clean pages, the monochrome images - both drawn and photographic - capture the reader's imagination as the book describes an area of historical fascination.
