The author of this study argues that the ending of slavery in South Africa's Cape Colony initiated an era of exceptional struggle about cultural categories and sensibilities.

The author postulates that for government officials the linkage between political economy society.

Book in new condition still in cellophane wrapper. Printed in 1998.
