Synopsis of Hunters and Herders of Southern Africa:

The Khoisan are a cluster of southern African peoples, including the famous Bushmen or San ‘hunters’, the Khoekhoe ‘herders’ (in the past called ‘Hottentots’), and the Damara, also a herding people. Most Khoisan live in the Kalahari desert and surrounding areas of Botswana and Namibia. In spite of differences in their way of life, the various groups have much in common, and this book explores these similarities and the influence of environment and history on aspects of Khoisan culture.
