Product Overview

The description of South Africa as a "rainbow nation" has always been taken to embrace the black, brown and white peoples who constitute its population. But each of these groups can be sub-divided and in the white case, the Scots have made one of the most distinctive contributions to the country's history. This book is the first full-length study of their role from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries and it offers a major contribution to both Scottish and South African history, in the process illuminating a significant field of the Scottish Diaspora that has so far received little attention.
