Fair Game tells the story of the Kruger's hidden history and heritage, from its establishment as the Sabi Reserve in 1898 to its eventual declaration as a national park, and beyond. It's an engrossing tale filled with stubborn personalities, twists of fate, unlikely heroes, greedy villains and (luckily) a very happy ending. So, prepare yourself for a grand historical safari as we recount the little-known tale of an unwanted wasteland that grew into the one of the greatest game reserves in the world.The Kruger National Park is an internationally renowned wildlife sanctuary and one of South Africa's top tourist attractions. However, this wasn't always the case. For the first 30 years of the park's existence, it was very unpopular and many people downright hated the idea of a reserve dedicated to the preservation of animals ('But what's the point of looking at the things?', one critic decried). In fact, without the dedication and fortitude of a handful of champions, the park would likely have been abandoned, diluted or deproclaimed altogether. Also included: a comprehensive planning guide and custom maps to help you make the most of your visit to the Kruger National Park.

This Handbook provides an essential guide to the study of resources and their role in socio-environmental change. With original contributions from more than 60 authors with expertise in a wide range of resource types and world regions, it offers a toolkit of conceptual and methodological approaches for documenting, analyzing, and reimagining resources and the worlds with which they are entangled. The volume has an introduction and four thematic sections. The introductory chapter outlines key trajectories for thinking critically with and about resources. Chapters in Section I, "(Un)knowing resources," offer distinct epistemological entry points and approaches for studying resources. Chapters in Section II, "(Un)knowing resource systems," examine the components and logics of the capitalist systems through which resources are made, circulated, consumed, and disposed of, while chapters in Section III, "Doing critical resource geography: Methods, advocacy, and teaching," focus on the practices of critical resource scholarship, exploring the opportunities and challenges of carrying out engaged forms of research and pedagogy. Chapters in Section IV, "Resource-making/world-making," use case studies to illustrate how things are made into resources and how these processes of resource-making transform socio-environmental life. This vibrant and diverse critical resource scholarship provides an indispensable reference point for researchers, students, and practitioners interested in understanding how resources matter to the world and to the systems, conflicts, and debates that make and remake it.

This volume brings together case studies from around the globe (including China, Latin America, the Philippines, Namibia, India and Europe) to explore the history of nature conservation in the twentieth century. It seeks to highlight the state, a central actor in these efforts, which is often taken for granted, and establishes a novel concept - the nature state - as a means for exploring the historical formation of that portion of the state dedicated to managing and protecting nature. Following the Industrial Revolution and post-war exponential increase in human population and consumption, conservation in myriad forms has been one particularly visible way in which the government and its agencies have tried to control, manage or produce nature for reasons other than raw exploitation. Using an interdisciplinary approach and including case studies from across the globe, this edited collection brings together geographers, sociologists, anthropologists and historians in order to examine the degree to which sociopolitical regimes facilitate and shape the emergence and development of nature states. This innovative work marks an early intervention in the tentative turn towards the state in environmental history and will be of great interest to students and practitioners of environmental history, social anthropology and conservation studies. ?

Cecil Rhodes and the Cape Afrikaners

Cecil Rhodes and the Cape Afrikaners

This is an account of a fascinating alliance between two seemingly incompatible political partners.

This is an account of a fascinating alliance between two seemingly incompatible political partners. On the one side Cecil Rhodes, perhaps the greatest British imperialist of his time - on the other side the Cape Afrikaners, part of the ethnic community which was engaged in a major war with that very empire at the close of the nineteenth century. Rhodes skilfully courted the Cape Afrikaners, despite his ardent imperialism and their autonomous colonial intent. While the impact of British imperialism and capitalism set in motion a process of ethnic and political consciousness, it also engendered a desire to be associated with the British. Such was Rhodes's charm that to some Cape Afrikaners he became a political hero, even an idol. But all this came to an abrupt and dramatic end with the filibustering expedition of Rhodes's lieutenant Jameson into the Transvaal at the end of 1895. This act of aggression stood in total contradiction to an important element of the political outlook of Cape Afrikaners and, while unwavering in their loyalty to the British Empire, they began to show solidarity with their republican brethren. Tamarkin successfully shows that the disengagement of the Cape Afrikaners from Rhodes was neither immediate nor inevitable. It was a painful and long process which was driven not just by the Jameson Raid but by Rhodes's increasingly provocative conduct. This extraordinary relationship only finally finished in 1898 during the election campaign, in which Rhodes and the Afrikaner Bond fought tooth and nail for control of the Cape Colony.
