Re-Viewing Resistance in Namibian History

Jeremy Silvester (ed.) 2015


UNAM Press

This rich collection combines the work of experienced academics and a new wave of young Namibian historians – architects of the past – writing about late nineteenth century resistance, songs of the struggle, gender issues in SWAPO’s camps, memorialisation, intenational solidarity, and aspects of the history of Kavango and Caprivi. They write ‘forgotten’ people into history and provide a reading of the past that reflects the tensions and competing identities that pervaded ‘the struggle’.
