Berghahn Books are pleased to announce the recent publication of South Africa's Dreams: Ethnologists and Apartheid in Namibia by Robert J. Gordon. The introduction can be read here, and the table of contents here.
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.
