From the earliest settlers to the various ethnic groups which now make up South Africa, the author offers an unrelentingly close scrutiny of the social, cultural and political history of South Africa. Going beyond the European rationale of conquest and despotism - that of bringing 'civilization' to the barbarians - here contested, de-constructed and banished, the author unravels the motives for control in materialism.
