Beyond the Pale: Essays on the History of Colonial South Africa by Robert Ross


This important collection of ten essays represents two decades of work by the foremost historian of the early colonial Cape. Some extremely influential articles hithero only available in obscure journals are revisited, together with new work published here for the first time.

Topics include class formation and economic structure, family history and settler demography, new insights into racial stratification in the pre-industrial Cape, the position of slaves and Khoi in the colonial leagal system, and the roots of Afrikaner Calvinism.
