Overview

"In The Last of the Queen's Men Peter Sanders relives his years in Africa, vividly recreating his experiences as a young and impressionable Englishman working first as an administrator and later as a scholar in the last years of British rule and the early days of Lesotho's independence." "He does so with the sharp eye of an observer and the authority of an historian, placing his experience in the context of the extraordinary history of contacts and relations between black and white in southern Africa in general and in Lesotho in particular. The Last of the Queen's Men is a little gem, offering both a perspective on a vanishing order and a celebration of Lesotho - of its mountainous grandeur and exhilarating climate, of its people, their history and their poetry." "After a career in race relations in the United Kingdom, ending as Chief Executive of the Commission for Racial Equality, Peter Sanders has now returned to African history."--BOOK JACKET.
