ABANTU.An introduction to the Black People of South Africa.


Strickly speaking,the tribal people of Southern Africa have ceased to exist;so much has changed,so much is changing,so much has already been lost.Dr. Martin West and Jean Morris have collaborated to create an image of words and pictures of what remaines of the traditional African way of life in South Africa.All the major groups are described;their customs,rituals and dress are shown and the meanings discussed.This is a record of a way of life centuries old but now,inexorably,drawing to an end,It may well be that at some point in the future,all that will remain of this proud heritage will be its oblique reflection in the new emerging black society.
