Canis africanis a dog history of Southern Africa by Lance Van Sittert ( )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The role of the dog in human society is the connecting thread that binds the essays in Canis Africanis, each revealing a different part of the complex social history of southern Africa. The essays range widely from concerns over disease, bestiality, and social degradation through gambling on dogs to anxieties over social status reflected through breed classifications, and social rebellion through resisting the dog tax imposed by colonial authorities. With its focus on dogs in human history, this project is part of what has been termed the 'animal turn' in the social sciences, which investigates the spaces which animals inhabit in human society and the way in which animal and human lives interconnect, demonstrating how different human groups construct a range of identities for themselves (and for others) in terms of animals. So instead of conceiving of animals as merely constituents of ecological or agricultural systems, they can be comprehended through their role in human cultures
Breeds of empire the 'invention' of the horse in Southeast Asia and Southern Africa, 1500-1950 by Greg Bankoff ( )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The culture of the horse : status, discipline, and identity in the Early Modern world ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume fills an important gap in the analysis of early modern history and culture by reintroducing scholars to the significance of the horse. A more complete understanding of the role of horses and horsemanship is absolutely crucial to our understanding of the early modern world. Each chapter in the collection provides a snapshot of how horse culture and the broader culture are intertwined in a tapestry of images, objects, structures, sounds, gestures, texts, and ideas. Without knowledge of how the horse figured in all these aspects, no version of political, material, or intellectual culture in the period can be entirely accurate."--BOOK JACKET
Riding high : horses, humans and history in South Africa by Sandra Scott Swart ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The equine colonisers of southern Africa not only provided power and transportation to settlers (and later indigenous peoples) but also helped transform their new biophysical and social environments. On commando, as draft and transport animals, and finally as markers of social status, horses were key to these colonial economies, buttressing the socio-political order and inspiring contemporary imaginations."--Back cover
