Mukiwa : A White Boy in Africa
by Peter Godwin
Peter Godwin grew up in Rhodesia during the end of white rule. While his Rhodesians Never Die is a historical account of that time, Mukiwa is a more personal narrative--a testament to Africa and a memoir as seen through the eyes of a child becoming a young man amidst civil war. Spanning 1964-1982, from when Godwin was a boy of six in Rhodesia to when he returned to Zimbabwe as a journalist covering the bloody transition back to black rule, Godwin personalizes a difficult era in South African history with clarity, intelligence, humor, empathy, and sharp prose.

Voices from the Rocks: Nature, Culture & History in the Matopos Hills of Zimbabwe
by Terence Ranger
Occupied by humanity for some 40,000 years, the Matopos Hills in Zimbabwe have become the scene of symbolic, ideological and armed conflict over the last hundred years. Voices from the Rocks is about landscape, religion, conservation, political symbolism, and war in the Matopos Hills - not simply the geography of the National Park there, which is seen by most visitors as a "wild place." This book reinstates culture and history into nature.

Winds of Destruction
Winds of Destruction
by P. J. H Petter-Bowyer
Book Description
The author was born in the highly successful self-governing British colony, Southern Rhodesia. His love of his country and its people is as clear in this book as his disbelief and anger over British and South African policies of political expendiency that forced Rhodesia out of the western camp into one clearly forseen to become a one-party Marxist dictatorship. Winds of Destruction is the story of the author's life before and after joining the Royal Rhodesian Air Force. The book centres on the writer's involvement with air and ground operations in Rhodesia's thirteen year war against the communist forces of Marxist Robert Mugabe and Joshua Nkomo who sought to gain power by force. 
The Zimbabwe Culture : Origins and Decline of Southern Zambezian States
by Innocent Pikirayi, Joseph O. Vogel
Offering a unique and original perspective on the rise and fall of indigenous states of southern Zambezia, "The Zimbabwe Culture" analyzes the long contentious history of the remains of the remarkable cyclopean masonry, ranging from mighty capitals of traditional kings to humble farmsteads. Forming a cornerstone of the geographical lore of Africa in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, debate on the origins, development, and collapse of the Zimbabwe culture has never ceased, and with increasing archaeological research over the twentieth century, has become more complex. Thoroughly examining the growth and decline of pre-colonial states on the entire Zimbabwean Plateau and southern Zambezia, Dr. Pikirayi has contributed tremendously towards the archaeological understanding of this extraordinary culture. "The Zimbabwe Culture" is essential reading for all students and avocationalists of African archaeology, history, and culture.
