Overview

The mountainous kingdom of Lesotho, a small landlocked territory entirely surrounded by South Africa, was established by Moshoeshoe, the first monarch of the country, during a period of great turbulence in southern Africa in the early nineteenth century. It was subsequently administered by the British, when it was known as Basutoland, until 1966 when it received full independence. This volume covers all aspects of Lesotho's history, politics, economy, social conditions and culture. Individual chapters are also devoted to the position of women in the country, literature and publishing history, and the kingdom's political and economic relationship with South Africa.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A critical, selective, and annotated bibliography for English readers on the small, landlocked, mountainous kingdom completely surrounded by South Africa. The focus is on the 20th-century history though some works describe the period back to the country's founding in the early 19th century. The selection is heavily weighted toward journal articles because of the lack of full-length treatments. Among the sections are geology, biographies and autobiographies, women and gender issues, industry, literature, sports and recreation, and periodicals. Includes one map. Well indexed. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
