REMEMBERING THE REBELLION (article first published : 2006-12-3)

Recently launched by The Campbell Collections, University of KZN Press and Adams Books, Remembering The Rebellion: The Zulu Uprising of 1906 was written by Jeff Guy to commemorate the centenary of the Zulu or Bhambatha rebellion of 1906.

Jeff Guy was Professor of History at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and is now Research Fellow at the Campbell Collections. He is well known for his books and articles on the history of KwaZulu-Natal in the imperial era.

Remembering the Rebellion tells the story of the uprising of disaffected Africans in Natal and Zululand as a direct consequence of the imposition of the poll tax. The book is based on the series of articles Jeff Guy wrote for The Witness earlier in the year and makes a special attempt to reach a wide audience.

It is profusely illustrated with photographs, drawings and maps. It also lays special emphasis on the way in which the rebellion has been remembered and the impact of the past on thinking in the present, and the importance of an historical perspective in the understanding of the present.
