oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Chronicles from the Bushveld : bookshelf

Volume 16, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The year 2007 marked the 85th anniversary of the founding of the Jeffares & Green Group. To mark this occasion, was published to pay tribute to the achievements of JLS Jeffares, Hal Green, and other giants of the civil engineering profession. Accounts of their early exploits were preserved in the form of diaries and letters written in the bushveld by the women who accompanied the expeditions. These 'chronicles' make fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in the veld, wildlife or history, and are all the better for having been written by non-engineers, thus avoiding the pitfalls of an overly technical focus. As such, the book is not the history of Jeffares & Green, but a celebration of civil engineering in southern Africa that can be dipped into by anyone at any time.
