Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Namibian history is notoriously under-researched. Much important work has been done in recent years in doctoral and other theses but very little of this has been published. The first three decades of South African rule have been especially neglected. ... It is to be hoped that the collection will inspire more work on the many grey areas that remain unexplored in Namibian history. - Tilman Dedering in OURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORY A particularly commendable feature of this publication is the provision of carefully selected photographs that function as a visual commentary to many of the arguments presented. - Reinhart Kossler in INTERNATIONAL REVIEW OF SOCIAL HISTORY ...packed with detail and with material which should interest not just Namibia specialists, but also many others who simply want to know how the Namibian people withstood the crucial first thirty years of South African occupation. - Alan Barnard in AFRICAN AFFAIRS ...highly innovative volume. - Axel Harneit-Sievers in INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORICAL STUDIES
