This is the first formal publication of two early plays by Soyinka, The Invention (1959) and The Detainee (1965). Widely regarded as Soyinka's first play, The Invention reflects the obsession with race that marked the apartheid regime, and prophetically depicts the beginnings of the crumbling of the apartheid system in the futuristic setting of Johannesburg in 1976. It expresses the concern of the African diapsora with apartheid, which was felt to be an affront to the entire race. The Detainee is a radioplay. The plot foreshadows the writer's own imprisonment and his now familiar concerns about the vagaries of African politics.

$a 'The only remarkable thing about Napolo was his simplicity - the naive and trusting simplicity of a villager...' The old man Napolo sets off from his village to go to see a white doctor in a distant town. On the way he falls among young thugs of the Youth Brigade who terrorize the land under the dictatorship of Sir Zaddock. He is taken away to a detention camp. It takes him a little time to realize that this is not just a rest camp. This remarkable and stylish novel shows an ordinary man mystified by the ways of people who have power over other men. It happens to be set in Africa and it happens to be in a dictatorship, but the bafflement of the old man in the face of changing circumstances could be anywhere in the world.

Rights Deportation And Detention In The Age Of Immigration Control

Immigration is among the most prominent, enduring, and contentious features of our globalized world. Yet, there is little systematic, cross-national research on why countries "do what they do" when it comes to their immigration policies. Rights, Deportation, and Detention in the Age of Immigration Control addresses this gap by examining what are arguably the most contested and dynamic immigration policies—immigration control—across 25 immigrant-receiving countries, including the U.S. and most of the European Union. The book addresses head on three of the most salient aspects of immigration control: the denial of rights to non-citizens, their physical removal and exclusion from the polity through deportation, and their deprivation of liberty and freedom of movement in immigration detention. In addition to answering the question of why states do what they do, the book describes contemporary trends in what Tom K. Wong refers to as the machinery of immigration control, analyzes the determinants of these trends using a combination of quantitative analysis and fieldwork, and explores whether efforts to deter unwanted immigration are actually working.

Countless thousands of men and women around the world have good reason to be thankful that Frank Partridge survived three and a half years of brutal Japanese captivity. Had he not, they too would in all probability have died too.Taken prisoner at the fall of Singapore in February 1942 Frank was forced to endure appalling deprivation. Conditions on the Burma railway were notorious, and the death rate was horrendous.On returning to Belfast in late 1945 Frank specialised in heart diseases. Convinced that the prompt application of electric shock after cardiac arrest could save lives he reasoned that ventricular defibrillation should be applied not just in hospitals but in the workplace, the home, the street or ambulance.His first 'portable' defibrillator was produced in 1965 and over the intervening years evolved into the compact units so prevalent today. The importance of Partridge's invention was well demonstrated when US President Lyndon B Johnston's life was saved in 1972.This stirring biography reveals the full story of a remarkable man who survived against the odds to save countless lives.
