Cecil Rhodes. The Man and His Dreams.

(1 customer review)


Cecil Rhodes – ‘The Man and His Dream’ is a newly titled edition of two notable, early biographies now presented as a single reprint volume to honour the memory of Rhodes on the 75th anniversary of his death (26th March 1977). The work comprises Cecil Rhodes by his architect, Herbert Baker (1934), and ‘The Last Will and Testament of Cecil John Rhodes’, with additional chapters by W. T. Stead (1902). They complement one another splendidly in portraying the character and thinking of Rhodes.

    I had this book many years ago lent to someone never to be seen again. A great book about a great man who gave his wealth unselfishly to further young people’s education. He was never recognised by the British government for this, yet others who did worse deeds in the name of the Empire, were.
