One of the many issues confronting post – apartheid South Africa is that the cultural expression of its citizens was severely limited by the policies of the previous regime. In building a new, democratic nation, many social, political and economical problems still need to be solved before a new sense of the nationhood can develop.This volume is a fist step in rewriting the cultural  history of the country, towards a more unified Cultural and historic vision, which it so sorely needs at present.
