Ten important essays cover topics including bubonic plague and urban native policy in the Cape Colony, 1900-1909; capitalism and cheap labor in South Africa; and the growth of Afrikaner identity. Includes an introduction which contextualizes the historiographical controversy, taking into account the 1994 election and associated changes. A glossary of terms is included, but no index.
