South West African Mandate - hardcover

1976, ISBN: 0702107034

ID: 1161849865

[EAN: 9780702107030], [PU: (Cape Town: Juta, 1976).], SOUTH-WEST AFRICA. NAMIBIA. UNITED NATIONS. APARTHEID. NAMIBIA, Jacket, Royal octavo, dustwrapper, a little scuffed and creased, pp. viii + 531, a few illustrations. Owner's name on the front free endpaper, light foxing on the text edges. 'For nearly one hundred years the territory on the Atlantic Ocean to the north of South Africa and to the south of Angola has been trying to grow up and become a fully fledged member of the community of nations. It has been assisted in this process by the unique educational experience of becoming the first German colony, the only mandate to be expressly named in the Covenant of the League of Nations, and the only territory in the world over which the United Nations claims the right to exercise jurisdiction. The end result is like that of many children in similar circumstances reared first by a parent, then by a foster-parent under state supervision, and finally by the state itself, in a state institution-the territory is a juvenile delinquent. It does not even know its own name, its inhabitants have been declared by the United Nations to be insufficiently experienced to be capable of deciding their own future, it has appeared before the International Court five times, a terrorist organization is its government in exile, and disturbances in neighbouring Angola have threatened the stillbirth of the nation. This book is an account of that educational process.'.
