n Historia - A powerful critique of recent colonial historiography
Theophilus Shepstone and the Forging of Natal, Jeff Guy : book review

Volume 59, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0018-229X



The majority of Guy's work has been a deeply rooted and fine grained history of African peoples in both Natal and Zululand, focusing specifically on power and production both before and during the colonial occupation of these regions. His close and careful readings of sources have primarily centred on the social and political economy of African peoples within and between these spaces, most notably in (1979), (2005), and (2006). Conversely, Guy's work has significantly avoided centring on settler and colonial society in Natal.
