Introduction by Patricia Hayes.

"The work presented here is an excellent sample of what can be accomplished by splicing different mediums, genres, traces and even senses in the attempt to convey a multi-faceted history of a region that has only recently been tied into a national historiography." Patricia Hayes, University of the Western Cape, from her introduction

Historian Lorenza Rizzo is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Centre for Humanities Research of the University of the Western Cape.
