About: Gondwana History: Memorable Moments from Namibia's Past, 2nd edition

"To understand the present you must know something of the past." These are the words one of the first travel writers in southern Africa, Lawrence Green, to whom we have dedicated a chapter in Gondwana History: Memorable Moments from Namibia's Past, 2nd edition. Green's writing shows that history can be very entertaining and educational at the same time. With his research and stories on Namibian history, Mannfred Goldbeck follows in Green's footsteps: His idea of a weekly news flash from the Namibian past in the Republikein and the Allgemeine Zeitung was met with great enthusiasm. The first 25 stories were published in May 2011 in the Gondwana History I anthology. Half a year later we present you with this 2nd edition of Gondwana History: Memorable Moments from Namibia's Past.
