The Shaping of South African Society, 1652-1840 edited by Richard Elphick and Herman Giliomee


The Shaping of South African Society, written by a team of scholars, each one a specialist and an internationally acknowledged authority, has become a standard work of reference and analysing regarding South Africa during the first two centuries of European colonisation.

Now published in a new edition, the book is substantially enlarged in scope, and deepened in terms of interpretation. Much fuller accounts of slaves, Khoikhoi and Griqua have been included, as well as an analysis of the administrative and economic revolution in the Cape that precipitated the Great Trek. The book incorporates 30 maps and 25 tables, many of which have been drawn up in the light of new research.
