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.'

' Zululand,' he observes, is an illustration, though not a complete miniature, of modern Africa.'

PART 4 (Cantos 18-22): Dante and Beatrice ascend from the Fifth Heaven of Mars (where the souls of warriors and martyrs are seen as stars which make up a dazzling cross) to the Sixth Heaven of Jupiter (where the spirits who were pre-eminent on earth for their sense of justice appear as a cluster of lights which forms itself into the pattern of an eagle's head); the symbolic Eagle speaks to Dante with a single voice. expounding among other things the inscrutability of Divine Justice; Dante and Beatrice ascend into the Seventh Heaven of Saturn where are those who passed their lives in holy contemplation; the poet speaks with St. Peter Damian and St. Benedict; Dante and Beatrice are snatched up into the Eighth Heaven of the Fixed S'ars, from which height Dante looks down at the heavens beneath him and at the distant earth.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
