    Once one has made the decision to continue reading despite the racist and condescending tone of the author it does present one with a glimpse into some aspects of life in pre 1930s Southern Africa

    I've been reading or re reading uite a lot of books by Lawrence George Green lately mainly because of my interest in family and local history and I've been compiling an index to some of them He is or was a raconeur and teller of travellers tales which are often interesting and entertaining if not always accurate He was a journalist and his books often read like a collection of newspaper features which they probably are He sometimes recycles stories so that they appear in than one of his books Secret Africa is one of his earlier books and was rather disappointing It was written before the Second World War and reprinted in 1974 I thought I might index it but discovered that there is nothing much worth indexing Some chapters read like a lazy journalist's rewrites of press releases the sort of advertorials one sometimes sees on TV The only thing interesting about them was that they are 80 years old so one gets a view of a different period The title Secret Africa is misleading There is nothing secret about most of it it's just PR stuff that people want you to know Even the personal chapters a description of a trip to Mauritius for example have the feeling of plugging a message from the sponsor and are full of racisim and snobbery as well The final chapter a description of gold mining in Johannesburg is full of statistics so that it reads in places like a company report how many tons of ore it takes to produce an ounce of gold how much bars of gold were worth how much it cost to sink a shaft and of course the marvelous accommodation food recreational and healthcare facilities provided by the benevolent mining companies for their native mineworkers Perhaps I'm unduly cynical about this because at the same time I've been reading the biography of Walter and Albertina Sisulu by their daughter in law Elinor Sisulu which describes how they helped to organise a miners' strike to protest against the poor housing pay food and all the other stuff that Green praises from the PR blurb Lawrence George Green's best work was written in the 1950s and 1960s and his earlier and later work seems to be dreck This one definitely falls into that category It seems to have been written before he hit his stride and in the later ones he seems to be coasting on empty
