South Africa's Dreams : Ethnologists and Apartheid in Namibia Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

  • Information


In the early sixties, South Africa’s colonial policies in Namibia served as a testing ground for many key features of its repressive ‘Grand Apartheid’ infrastructure, including strategies for countering anti-apartheid resistance.

Exposing the role that anthropologists played, this book analyses how the knowledge used to justify and implement apartheid was created.

Understanding these practices and the ways in which South Africa’s experiences in Namibia influenced later policy at home is also critically evaluated, as is the matter of adjudicating the many South African anthropologists who supported the regime.
