The White Tribes Revisited

By Richard West

André Deutsch, 1978, 199 pp.

Two seasoned British travelers offer rambling short takes on southern Africa sparked with local color. In the aftermath of his rescue from Idi Amin by the British Foreign Secretary, Hills writes of 15 months spent cataloguing Rhodesia's black-white relations-which he now views as irreparable-from the vantage point of an African teacher training college. West's peregrinations are largely, though not exclusively, spent peering keenly at the ironies of British and Afrikaner life in South Africa.
