[EAN: 9780864862518], [PU: (Cape Town: David Philip, 1996) 0864862512], RURAL LIFE. WESTERN TRANSVAAL. NORTH-WEST PROVINCE. LAND RIGHTS. SOCIAL HISTORY TRANSVAAL, 234 x 155 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. xvi + (ii) + 649, incl. index; plates; maps. Some spotting to top edge; top fore-corner a little bumped; small crease to bottom fore-corner of lower cover. Very good condition. "Kas Maine lived out his long life as a black sharecropper on the South African highveld, witness to the turbulent days of the Anglo-Boer War and to the coming of Sun City. Of his life there is almost no official record. Now Charles van Onselen has written an extraordinary biography, restoring Kas Maine to the historical record and, in so doing, greatly enhancing our understanding of the social and economic dynamics that shaped South Africa's platteland. Across the farms of the western Transvaal, from one harvest to another, Van Onselen retraces a century of one family's experience. It is a story of ploughs and oxen and tractors, of praise songs and healing plants, of independent churches and political movements, of landlords, both black and white, of diamonds and dust storms and highveld rain. Above all, it is the story of one family and its patriarch, a family complicated as families are, and battling against disintegration under the twin pressures of South Africa's racial politics and a rapidly modernising world. The Seed is Mine is a literary tour de force as well as a major contribution to the social history of South Africa. Here, in the story of Kas Maine, is the sense of tragedy which we have come to expect from history. But here, too, is that dogged determination, called hope, which looks to each coming harvest for the seeds of a more abundant life."
