n Historia - Admirable collection on identities in Dutch Cape Town
Cape Town between East and West: Social Identities in a Dutch Colonial Town, Nigel Worden (Ed.) : book review

Volume 58, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0018-229X



brings together a collection of ten essays, along with an absorbing "Introduction", written by a number of well known historians in the field of Cape colonial history. As far as the contributors to this wonderfully edited volume go, they constitute the "usual suspects" (apart from two recent PhD graduates, Groenewald and Baartman). As participants in an interdisciplinary research group which was founded by the Universities of Cape Town and the Western Cape in 2003, the authors have trained their collective gaze on Dutch Cape Town and produced exciting new work in the process.
