Tradition and Transition in Southern Africa Book Description :

This volume brings together many of the most interesting anthropologists writing on the current situation in South Africa. Initially conceived as a tribute to the work of Philip Mayer, the author of Townsmen and Tribesmen, the volume continues a tradition of digging into the interstices of South African society at the folk, tribal, and national levels. Each chapter examines the myriad ways in which tradition is a critical factor for those who must cope with the trauma of social and economic transition. This theme, central to the work of Philip and Iona Mayer, allows the reader to probe the core issues of South Africa and provide a theoretical structure for the study of other societies in similar states of transition to modernity....

The Tribe That Washed Its Spears Book Description :

By tracing the long and turbulent history of the Zulus from their arrival in South Africa and the establishment of Zululand, The Zulus at War is an important and readable addition to this popular subject area. It describes the violent rise of King Shaka and his colorful successors under whose leadership the warrior nation built a fearsome fighting reputation without equal among the native tribes of South Africa. It also examines the tactics and weapons employed during the numerous intertribal battles over this period. They then became victims of their own success in that their defeat of the Boers in 1877 and 1878 in the Sekhukhuni War prompted the well-documented British intervention. Initially the might of the British Empire was humbled as never bef...

They were systematized radically by the Zulu king Shaka, who was then only the exiled illegitimate son of king Senzangakona, but al...

Partner to History Book Description :

A remarkable book about a remarkable time, Partner to History reveals the role played by U.S. diplomacy in South Africa's surprisingly successful transition from apartheid to democracy. Princeton Lyman, the U.S. ambassador during the transition, makes clear that America didn't "own" the transition process-the South Africans did. But U.S. involvement was active and intense. And it made a difference. Lyman tells an enthralling story of how Washington policymakers and the American embassy used U.S. influence, economic assistance, and political support to help end apartheid without sparking civil war. The book offers candid assessments both of U.S. policy deliberations and of the leading players in the unfolding, unpredictable drama. It takes us behind t...
