An addition to the fast growing series of Appleton Biographies, and one of the best from the general reader point of view. Cecil Rhodes is a dramatic figure, and the reunion of American and Canadian Rhodes Scholars at Swarthmore in June should provide a certain amount of current publicity which will help the sale of this book. Particularly in bookshops in the vicinity. The important biography of Cecil Rhodes, by Sarah Gertrude Millin has been postponed, so this smaller biography comes at a good time for the reader who wants the information here and now. Excellent, thorough and well-written, this brief life of the great South African magnate gives a sympathetic enough picture for one to appreciate the ability and the charm of this contradictory man, while seeing his materialism and opportunism....
