Hai||om in the Etosha Region. A History of Colonial Settlement, Ethnicity and Nature Conservation
The Etosha Region in Namibia, comprising the famous Etosha National Park and its adjacent communal and commercial farm lands, has been a contested region since the advent of colonial settlement. The centenary of the Etosha Park in 2007 provided an opportune moment for critical reflection on its history, a much-needed appraisal achieved by this book through its multiple perspectives. At the centre of this book are the Hai||om San and their long history of dispossession and discrimination. The author, Ute Dieckmann, is a German anthropologist currently based in Cologne (Germany).
