Kwela / South African History Online 2001.. Owners inscription ffep. VG+ condition.. 214pp sofcover 8vo. The first wave of Indian immigrants arrived in South Africa as indentured labourers, followed by a second wave known as Passenger Indians - individuals who had paid their own fare. Being the last wave of immigrants to enter a British colony, the Indians saw themselves, and were perceived by others, as a homogeneous group originating from India. The apartheid state as well as anti-apartheid organisations saw advantages in this. Author analyses this construct and shows how Indian identity is being transformed to meet the challenges of the new democratic South Africa.
