Six studies in African anthropology by Max Gluckman
Professor of Social Anthropology in the University of Manchester
6-The Bonds of the Colour Bar
' The divisions, the conflicts, the hatreds between people and groups in South Africa are obvious enough,' says the speaker. ' The striking problem here is to find the order, not the quarrels; to see how quarrels are contained, not how they arise.' In his final lecture Professor Gluckman traces the changing relations between black and white groups in the history of Zululand and shows that, until recently, there were many cross-linkages between these groups. Zululand,' he observes, ' is an illustration, though not a complete miniature, of modern Africa.'
