Pre-Colonial Africa: The late 19th Century History as Soap Opera DAVID: the sensitive young Scottish crofter's son who dreamed of a being a missionary. HENRY: an illigitimate Welsh boy who lied about his background, nationality and even his name to fulfil his lust for glory. FREDDIE: after a disasterous love affair, he enlists in the most dangerous job he can in a vain attempt to get himself killed. KARL: the drug dealer who peddled religion and opium with equal gusto. FLORA: the feminist who married a crusty old army officer These read like cast members in a contemporary TV drama, but they are very real historical characters. This remarkable book shows how the lives of these - and other - characters intertwined across the historical events of late-nineteenth century Africa, shaping the face of the continent we know today. For the first time, the links between the Chinese Opium Wars and the `scramble for Africa` are explored, and the author shows how Religion, Drugs, Commerce, and individual ambition were as important as Colonial Policy in the soap opera of state. John Downes was born in Plymouth in 1925. He married Mary in 1947, and in 1953 they moved to Northern Nigeria where he worked in a post designed to bring modern agricultural techniques to the region's farmers, before being transferred to an administrative position and posted to Hong Kong. He discovered that he had been following - almost literally - in the footsteps of Lord Frederick Lugard, a soldier and Colonial Service officer who had been pivotal to the history of the region half a century before. From personal experience, therefore, this book was born.
Ce livre est publié à l'occasion d'une exposition monographique sur Werner Bischof, l'un des photo-reporters les plus importants du XXème siècle, qui se tient au Palais Royal de Turin. Né à Zurich en 1916, il s'inscrit à la Kunstgewerberschule de la ville, où il suit les cours de photographie que Hans Finsler vient de créer et obtient son diplôme en 1936. A l'âge de vingt ans, il ouvre son atelier de photographie dans sa ville de naissance et ses qualités techniques ainsi bien que sa recherche de perfection formelle sont bientôt mises en évidence. Dès la fin de la deuxième guerre mondiale, il se consacre au photojournalisme, en voyageant dans le monde entier pour le compte de l'agence Magnum Photos, dont il devient membre en 1949 peu après sa création. En 1954, lors d'un voyage au Pérou, il meurt dans un accident de voiture. L'exposition et le catalogue présentent cent-cinq des plus belles photos en noir et blanc de Bischof, regroupées en sept sections: Zurich 1916-1945, Europe après la deuxième guerre mondiale 1945-1950, Japon 1951-1952, Corée 1951-1952, Hong Kong/Indochine 1951-1952, Inde 1951-1952, Amérique du Nord et du Sud 1953-1954. Les images de Bischof sont encore aujourd'hui émouvantes et intenses : il était considéré par la critique comme un 'photo-reporter humaniste'.
When the Chinese Communists defeated the Chinese Nationalists and occupied the mainland in 1949-1950, U.S. policymakers were confronted with a dilemma. Disgusted by the corruption and, more importantly, failure of Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist armies and party and repelled by the Communists' revolutionary actions and violent class warfare, in the early 1950s the U.S. government placed its hopes in a Chinese 'third force.' While the U.S. State Department reported on third forces, the CIA launched a two-prong effort to actively support these groups with money, advisors, and arms. In Japan, Okinawa, and Saipan, the agency trained third force troops at CIA bases. The Chinese commander of these soldiers was former high-ranking Nationalist General Cai Wenzhi. He and his colleagues organized a political group, the Free China Movement. His troops received parachute training as well as other types of combat and intelligence instruction at agency bases. Subsequently, several missions were dispatched to Manchuria-the Korean War was raging then-and South China. All were failures and the Chinese third force agents were killed or imprisoned. With the end of the Korean War, the Americans terminated this armed third force movement, with the Nationalists on Taiwan taking in some of its soldiers while others moved to Hong Kong. The Americans flew Cai to Washington, where he took a job with the Department of Defense. The second prong of the CIA's effort was in Hong Kong. The agency financially supported and advised the creation of a third force organization called the Fighting League for Chinese Freedom and Democracy. It also funded several third force periodicals. Created in 1951 and 1952, in 1953 and 1954 the CIA ended its financial support. As a consequence of this as well as factionalism within the group, in 1954 the League collapsed and its leaders scattered to the four winds. At the end, even the term 'third force' was discredited and replaced by 'new force.' Finally, in the early 1950s, the CIA backed as a third force candidate a Vietnamese general. With his assassination in May 1955, however, that effort also came to naught.
