Portraits of Colonial Natal

Portraits of Colonial Natal by duncan DuBois is a collection of twelve thoroughly researched articles by the author of Labourer or Settler? Colonial Natal’s Indian dilemma (2011) and Sugar and Settlers: A history of the Natal South Coast 1850-1910 (2015). “Duncan Du Bois must be the worst nightmare of those student activists who shout about ‘decolonising’ – whatever that might mean. His previous books, Labourer or Settler and Sugar and Settlers, have provided a profound insight into the achievements of the colonial enterprise as well as its dubious foundations, particularly in terms of human rights. That research has inevitably taken him down many byways. The outcome has been the appearance in recent years of a number of articles in various academic journals. These are now brought together and republished in this new volume.
