Description:

Traders and trade in colonial Ovamboland, 1925-1990 is a book on the history of traders and trading stores in twentieth century northern Namibia. Through the prism of trade, it offers a detailed account of social and political change in the region the colonial authorities called Ovamboland. Labour migration, colonial rule in its changing forms, local social differentiation, urbanisation and the struggle for liberation were all crucially linked to the history of shops and their owners. Gregor Dobler's main focus lies on the time between 1925, when the first stores were opened, and 1990, when the former homeland Ovamboland became an integral part of independent Namibia.
