“To Swim with Crocodiles is a triumph on many levels. Kelly intervenes in local, regional, national, and continental history. Her deeply learned study offers critical insights into the ways in which local history in KwaZulu-Natal revealed the tangled politics of chiefship and white supremacy. Simultaneously, the book offers a rich and fluent understanding of the civil wars that marked the end of apartheid and develops theories on land and authority on par with the best scholarship anywhere on the continent. This book is a tremendous achievement.” —Daniel Magaziner, Associate Professor of History, Yale University “This book is timely, as a new exposition of South African history is in demand, particularly one focusing, among other important themes, on land, violence, and national identity. This is a relevant case study in terms of understanding the history of colonization, land dispossession, social engineering, and structural violence in South Africa.” ―Sifiso Mxolisi Ndlovu, Professor of History, University of South Africa, and Executive Director, South African Democracy Education Trust [More]
