Summary
This title in the World Cultures series is as much a call to end contemporary oppression as it is a celebration of rich traditional culture. The packed chapters trace the history of the San (Bushmen), the earliest people in large parts of southern Africa, who were there 40,000 to 10,000 years ago, until they were driven into the desert, first by Bantu people and then by white settlers. Uncluttered pages filled with color photos show the San life today, as well as the incredible ancient cave rock paintings that still exist. Few San are still hunters and gatherers, but in 2006, the Botswana courts ruled that the San have a right to their ancestral land
