"Planned to provide a complete picture of the Native existence in South Africa, the authors have covered the effect of Christianity, education and Western Civilization in general on the culture of the Bantu peoples, and they have examined the influences on their language and music. The questions of assimilation and race-mixture, the most fundamental in the eyes of the world today, are also discussed, and the final essay is by a native leader who enumerates the various anomolies and injustices responsible for so much of the discontent that his people feel under the regime."--Dust jacket flap
