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 204 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."--Jacket

Riding high : horses, humans and history in South Africa by Sandra Scott Swart( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 101 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
Canis africanis : a dog history of Southern Africa by Lance Van Sittert( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 86 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

"Discontented scoundrels who crowd the mercantile marine today" : labour relations regimes of the Cape and Ichaboe guano trade, c. 1843-1898 by Hendrik Snyders( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scraping of guano on offshore islands in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans during the mid- to late nineteenth century was an essentially primitive industry. As guano is a natural product with no further need for processing, the primary task of guano workers was the physical collection of guano chunks using basic tools such as crowbars, spades and wheelbarrows. Working on nearly barren islands with non-existent harbour facilities in remote areas far removed from its supply source, meant that guano-collection was an extremely risky enterprise and guano-labour was both back breaking and hazardous labour. Motivated by profit considerations, guanopreneurs and the Cape colonial state established and maintained an exploitative and coercive labour regime characterised by the use of deferred wages, credit and rationing as well as rigid contract enforcement. Guano diggers, however, did not accept these practices passively and as this article demonstrates, actively resisted their exploitation and marginalisation. As a result, the Cape colonial authorities were compelled to intervene, changing the system in 1898
