"Buthelezi is chief minister of Kwazulu (a South African bantustan), a chief of the Zulu nation, and president of Inkatha (his political organization competing with the African National Congress). Many see him as a moderate and important black leader, and this book is an attempt to evaluate the man and Inkatha. Mare (University of Natal) and Hamilton (a journalist) contend that Buthelezi is a would-be dictator concerned only with self-aggrandizement who stands for ideas inimical to the African revolution, such as power-sharing with the present regime and the retention of a free-market economy in South Africa. Recommended for academic collections. Paul H. Thomas, Hoover Inst. Lib., Stanford, Cal." -- Library Journal

Women and Chinese Patriarchy: Submission, Servitude and Escape
Eds. Maria Jaschok & Suzanne Miers
Edited and typeset by Keith Addison
Zed Books, Hong Kong University Press
ISBN: 1856491269
"Through the centuries, Chinese women and girls have been transferred, bought and sold for marriage, concubinage, domestic service and prostitution in China and amongst overseas Chinese communities. Although this traffic was apparently stamped out after World War II, it has reappeared in China on a large scale since the mid-1970s. This is a study of the forms of servitude to which Chinese women have been subjected and the avenues of escape open to them. Based on original documentation, oral testimony and personal experience, this work includes eye-witness accounts of the women concerned, their owners, missionary rescuers and those who escaped."

An East India Company Cemetery: Protestant Burials in Macao
Lindsay and May Ride
Ed., project manager, Keith Addison
Hong Kong University Press
ISBN: 9622093841
"The 160 gravestones in the Old Protestant Cemetery in Macao read as pages of history from the Western world's encounter with China a century and a half ago. Many of the major figures of the time are buried here. The history of the lives and deaths of these British, European and American residents and visitors during the turbulent events that led to the Opium War and the founding of Hong Kong is not one that can be told in epitaphs alone, especially when many of the epitaphs are barely legible after more than 150 years of weathering. Lindsay and May Ride spent long hours deciphering the fading messages and investigating the backgrounds of the deceased. The. result is not only an essential guide to the cemetery but a richly peopled account of a fascinating period of history."
