John Miller (Modern Languages, 1958)
I wrote this book for three reasons. First, out of a gratitude for the wonderful four years I enjoyed as District Officer in Swaziland in the 1960s. Second, to help counter the generally negative perception of our colonial past. And third, and most important, to try to raise Swaziland's profile. Swaziland is currently ravaged by drought, probably caused by global warming and it has the highest HIV/AIDs level in the world (42%). It desperately needs inward investment. As Deputy Prime Minister Albert Shabangu said last year, "If something is not done, the nation will cease to exist". I hope the book shows the Swazis are a delight and deserve to prosper.
