Guns, Race, and Skill in South Africa up to 1867

"Guns, Race, and Skill in South Africa up to 1867" is the first chapter in a book entititled: Black Guns and White Power: Disarmament and British Rule in South Africa. The book examines the transfer of guns and shooting skills across cultural and ecological boundaries in nineteenth-century South Africa, focusing on the ways in which Europeans and Africans represented the risks of skills with guns. Debates about guns and disarmament were closely bound up with debates about who was to be a citizen and who was to be a subject.
