Book Description Penguin, Middlesex Engl, 1983. Softcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Marfree, tanned 1stEd yellow photographic wraps; name inside, not marked-in, underscored, clearance or discard. Mails from NYC usually within 12 hours.; 0.9 x 7.7 x 5 Inches; 448 pages; Vivid account of Rhodesia (but through biased eyes), April 19, 2002 By Online Review:David Caute's "Under the Skin: The Death of White Rhodesia" is a difficult book to pin down. On the one hand, it is an exhaustive account of the most grim years of the Rhodesian war (1976-1980), and does a masterful job of chronicling white Rhodesia's violent, chaotic last days. The "feel" one gets from the book is go gripping and vivid that one's first inclination is to recommend this book as the definitive account of "the death of white Rhodesia."Despite this great strength, however, "Under the Skin" is crippled by a terrible flaw: Caute's decidedly one-sided views and blatant distaste for Rhodesia's whites. He provides laundry-lists of whites killed by African guerillas with the non-chalance of someone who believes the whites got what they deserved; at one particularly ludicous point he refers to a white Rhodesian politician as "Herr" Hilary Squires. As a piece of journalism, then, "Under the Skin" is atrocious -- Caute makes no attempt to be the least bit impartial, and that undermines the credibility of his entire narrative.So why the four stars? This rating is based on the assumption that most people who come across this book have a strong interest in / knowledge of southern Africa and can therefore cut through Caute's personal agenda to appreciate his otherwise deft handling of 1970s Rhodesia. If you are a newcomer to the subject, be warned: this is not an even-handed account, and you may do better elsewhere for starters. Bookseller Inventory # 22613
