The present United Evangelical Mission is the successor organisation of the Rhenish Mission Society which was active in South Africa and today's Namibia in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The present slim volume offers a succinct summary of the history of that mission and its preceding societies in German (1-52) and in English (53-86). The author is one of the archivists of the UEM, based at its seat in Wuppertal in Germany and thoroughly acquainted with all the extant resources. In this review I focus on Appelt's presentation of the activities in Southern Africa.
