NEW LOW PRICE This book is designed as a tribute and response to Yvonne Vera's famous novel Butterfly Burning, which is set in the Bulawayo townships in 1946 and dedicated to the author. It is an attempt to explore what historical research and reconstruction can add to the literary imagination. Responding as it does to a novel, this history imitates some fictional modes. Two of its chapters are in effect 'scenes', dealing with brief periods of intense activity. Others are in effect biographies of 'characters'. The book draws upon and quotes from a rich body of urban oral memory. In addition to this historical/literary interaction the book is a contribution to the historiography of southern African cities, bringing out the experiential and cultural dimensions, and combining black and white urban social history. TERENCE RANGER was Emeritus Rhodes Professor of Race Relations, University of Oxford and author of many books including Writing Revolt/>, Are we not also Men? (1995), Voices from the Rocks (1999) and was co-editor of Violence and Memory (2000). Zimbabwe: Weaver Press

About the Author :

TERENCE RANGER is Emeritus Rhodes Professor of Race Relations, University of Oxford.

Review :

A wonderful historical mosaic (and) an illuminating study of the social history of the city. AFRICAN AFFAIRS Ranger exploits the techniques of a novelist. While sticking hard to the facts, he seeks to bring the city's history alive by telling it through the eyes and ears of those who lived it. He succeeds magnificently and so consolidates his reputation as Zimbabwe's foremost living historian. CONTEMPORARY REVIEW A unique and stylish contribution to the social history of African cities and Zimbabwean cultural life. (...) It is as vivid and dramatic as only Ranger can make it. BRITAIN ZIMBABWE SOCIETY NEWSLETTER For scholars examining trade union politics and grassroots politics in other African cities, these monographs serve as models to follow in their use of primary sources and interviews. Scholarship on southern African cities has long led the way in developing the historiography of urban Africa as a whole, and these works show this is still the case in the early twenty-first century. H-NET (reviewed with URP's The Urban Roots of Democracy and Political Violence in Zimbabwe Harare and Highfield, 1940-1964)
