"Eight essays on critical moments in the making of capitalism in southern Africa. Griquas throw off an old order as they move from pastoralism to cultivation; the Cape Colony passes through depression and its economy is transformed. The new Union of South Africa intervenes in trade through the creation of the Reserve Bank, while industry develops on the basis of a highly complex labour structure. 

The relationships between politics and economics are revealed in detail, from the commencement of the nineteenth century to the interplay and government in the era of apartheid." Taken from the book.
