Hidden Histories of Gordonia
by Martin Legassick
Hidden Histories of Gordonia: Land Dispossesion and Resistance in the Northern Cape, 1800-1990
The Gordonia region of the Northern Cape Province has received relatively little attention from historians. In Hidden Histories of Gordonia: Land dispossession and resistance in the Northern Cape, 1800-1990, Martin Legassick explores aspects of the generally unknown 'brown' and 'black' history of the region. Emphasising the lives of ordinary people, his writing is also in part an exercise in 'applied history' - historical writing with a direct application to people's lives in the present.
