"In this book, Saul Dubow addresses the relationship between social and scientific thought, colonial identity, and political power in nineteenth- and twentieth-century South Africa.

Hinged on the tension between the presumed universality of colonial knowledge and its realization in the context of a society divided along complex ethnic and racial fault-lines, Dubow looks at modern South African historiography and the significance of 'broad' South Africanism - a political tradition designed to transcend differences between white English- and Afrikaans-speakers."--Jacket.
