Pumla Gqola "examines how the South African imagination conceives of, constructs and interprets itself at a time of transition, and how slavery is evoked and remembered as part of negotiating current ways of being." from the introduction

"'What is Slavery to Me?' is a landmark book on the role of slavery in shaping contemporary South Africa. Drawing on historical scholarship as well as studies of slavery worldwide, Gqola delivers a brilliant new piece of literary and cultural analysis" Gabeba Baderoon
