mitchell on property, family and identity on the south african frontier, 1725-1830


Laura J. Mitchell has published a brilliant monograph on the VOC, settlers, and natives in early Southern Africa.  The book analyses contact, law and order, settler life, Khoisan resistance and Company authority all in one neat package – and is arranged beautifully.

Congratulations to Dr. Mitchell for her fantastic monograph, and for her decision to publish it as a stunning e-book on Gutenberg, free for all readers to enjoy.
