Contents:
Approaching Kuruman -- Goat people and Fish people on the agro-pastoral frontier, c. 1750-1830 -- Intensification and social innovation on the Cape frontier, 1820's-1884 -- Colonial annexation: land alienation and environmental administration, 1884-1894 -- Environmental trauma, colonial rule, and the failure of extensive food production, 1895-1903 -- The environmental history of a "labor reservoir," 1903-1970s -- Apportioning water, dividing land: segregation, 1910-1977 -- Betterment and the Bophuthatswana donkey massacre: the environmental rights of tribal subjects, 1940s-1983 -- Retrospectives on socio-environmental history and socio-environmental justice.
Summary: Explores the environmental dynamic in the history of rural black South Africans. It historicizes food production and other environmental relations. But class, gender and, later, race determined the food production individuals practised. After the mid-twentieth century, the interventionist state enforced coercive conservation and segregation, undermining most food production by blacks.
