Shaka’s Children. A History of the Zulu People.


Until now,history has portrayed Shaka,founder of the Zulu nation,as a pitiless and savage conqueror who depopulated much of southern Africa.Yet,on first encountering the Zulu,British fortune seekers of the 1820s described a civilized and dignified people,whose martial qualities were tempered by generosity and hospitality.The authors writing is resonant and acute,conjuring the atmosphere of the past without losing sight of historical versimilitude.
