Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up Zimbabwe. . .in Pictures has the most balanced text of recent children's books about countries in southern Africa. It is a thorough revision of Bernadine Bailey's Rhodesia in Pictures (Sterling, 1974; o.p.), and it not only updates the sections on history, politics, economics and social life, but also eliminates biases in the earlier edition and discusses both accomplishments and problems since Rhodesia became Zimbabwe in 1980. Color photographs, maps, and charts have been added. Although the photographs are not as attractive as those in Keith Lye's Zimbabwe (Watts, 1987), the captions are more meaningful. The text is more accurate and balanced than Lye's text. It is packed with facts about geography, prehistory, history, politics, economics, and social life, making it especially useful as a social studies introduction to the country. In contrast to most other children's books on Zimbabwe and Rhodesia, the emphasis is on the African majority rather than on the white minority of colonial settlers and their descendants. However, the text shows sensitivity to issues of importance to both blacks and whites. A straightforward, clearly organized, and balanced presentation of colonial and post-independence history.
