Book Description

This book is essentially about stereotypes as found in the literature and culture of South Africa. It deals specifically with those people referred to in the South African racial legislation as ‘coloureds’. The book is also an illustration of the way in which stereotypes function as a means of social control and repression.

First published in 1981. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
