MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book is a dextrous and innovative survey of the articulations between discourses of race, class, and gender in South Africa and Britain during the nineteenth century. . . . Overall, [the author] has succeeded in producing a readable, thought-provoking, and, in places, revelatory study."--Alan Lester "Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute "
"Magubane explores the deployment of images of black bodies from southern Africa in British discourse in the nineteenth century. . . . She raises important arguments and illuminates complicated interconnections between different colonial sites. . . . This striking study is both passionate and thought-provoking."--Elizabeth Elbourne "American Historical Review "
"Magubane's book is a welcome intervention in the growing literature on the mutually constituitive relation between metropole and colony. . . . A stimulating study that deserves to be widely read."--Catherine Hall "Albion "
