Questions of identity, belonging, and place are crucial issues in South Africa today. To Speak of this Land explores these issues in a way that is academically rigorous but refreshingly accessible. Duncan Brown's focus is South Africa - spanning Bushman storytelling, rock painting, and aboriginal land claims; African-Christian identity formations; Mazisi Kunene's Emperor Shaka the Great; Ronnie Govender's Cato Manor stories; the poetry of Douglas Livingstone; and the rap music of Prophets of da City - but he draws on comparative material from elsewhere in the world, as well as stressing the 'global' aspects of 'local' identities. To Speak of this Land offers thought-provoking answers for a South African context to this internationally challenging question.
