Edited by John de Gruchy
Compiled to mark the bicentenary of the London Missionary Society in Southern Africa, this volume provides an assessment of the work and legacy of the Society, which played a critical role in the politics and societies of the subcontinent and whose leading figure—like David Livingstone, Robert Moffat, and John Philip—were major historical actors in their day.
Contributors include John de Gruchy, Christopher Saunders, Steve de Gruchy, Andrew Ross, John and Jean Comaroff, Natasha Erlank, Helen Ludlow, Robert Ross, Elizabeth Elbourne, Norman Etherington, and Les Switzer.
