Posted by David Theo Goldberg 0 comment(s)

From the earliest moments of encounter and unequal exchange, the colonial prehistory of South Africa introduced effects with more or less permanent and interacting impacts: modern urban-making and the politics of its contestation, its remaking according to a blueprint of ruled division; the knotted, contested, often tragic politics of more or less robust mixture, ethnoracially, miscegenationally, socio-culturally; and the threatening political economy of racial division, separation, and segregation, with their invariably, even inevitably, tragic effects.
