Product description

The way in which Indian South Africans see themselves has undergone a long process of development since the first indentured workers were set ashore in Port Natal in 1860. As the 21st century arrived, many have come to see themselves simply and primarily as South Africans with a proud Indian heritage.In a very special way, this book gives an overview of and insight into the complexity and variety of what can be broadly termed Indian South African identity, history and experience. The authoritative text - supported by visual material from public and private sources - steers clear of easy simplifications as it celebrates a dynamic culture alive with diversity.
