"This book makes a unique and significant contribution to Khoe-San research and cultural studies in general because it focuses on the socio-cultural significance of dress and draws on important artefact collections about which very little has been published." Jeremy Hollmann, Research Associate, Rock Art Research Institute, University of the Witwatersrand

"'Dress as Social Relations' makes an original contribution to the study of historical southern African hunter-gatherers and generates new insights into the biography of objects, their social significance, and the formation of identity across space and time." Gerald Klinghardt, Curator, Social History Collections, Iziko Museums of South Africa
