This book is an autobiographical account by Athanasio Dzadagu, a former Zimbabwean Catholic priest, outlining and reflecting on the experiences he had in Britain during the period from 1996-2014. While indeed the book is largely about the author’s own experiences as an immigrant, an African and a Zimbabwean, in many ways it is also a reflection on the experiences of Zimbabweans in Britain. These include the challenge of being far away from home, the initial shock of finding their good English not understood, experiences while undertaking further studies, the challenge of an environment characterised by persistent negative headlines about Zimbabwe and its president, Robert Mugabe and the challenge of British social and cultural values. The book also opens the reader’s eyes to how, having come to Britain hoping to return to Zimbabwe as a high-flying academic, to teach in the Major Seminary or any one of Zimbabwe’s universities, Fr Dzadagu instead ended up leaving priesthood.

Manchester-born Sir Joseph John Thomson (1858-1940), discoverer of the electron, was one of the most important Cambridge physicists of the later nineteenth and first half of the twentieth centuries. Succeeding Lord Rayleigh as Cavendish Professor of Experimental Physics, he directed the research interests of the laboratory, and eight of his students, including Rutherford, went on to win Nobel Prizes, as Thomson himself did in 1906. He was knighted in 1908, received the Order of Merit in 1912, and became Master of Trinity College in 1918. He also served as President of the Royal Society from 1915 from 1920 and was a government advisor on scientific research during World War I. This autobiography, published in 1936, covers all aspects of his career - his student days in Manchester, arrival in Cambridge, and growing international reputation. It gives a fascinating picture of Cambridge life and science at a dynamic period of development.

Excerpt from A Rambler's Recollections and Reflections IN my Preface I address myself mainly to the pro fessional critic and reviewer and to the anglo-indian official, and I plead their kindly generosity. To the critics I would say that I am an entertainer pure and simple, with no habit of the pen whatever. I feel that in their presence I am but as the dust of the earth (only, however, in reference to their own special line of life). I am like an amateur sitting down to play my first game of chess with Lasker or Black burne or starting out to box with Carpentier or Jack Johnson. Remember, what is sport to you is death to me you know the rules of the game - I don't so as you are strong be merciful to my humble efforts.
