‘Perhaps no people in southern Africa have captured the Western imagination more than the Zulu. In this powerful and passionate narrative, Professor Jeff Guy shows how, after its conquest, the Zulu kingdom was destroyed by imperial policies of divide and rule, and how the Colenso family, especially the Bishop’s eldest daughter, Harriette, took the lead in resisting colonial exploitation and imperial domination ... In this moving biography of Harriette, Jeff Guy illuminates the courage, vision and insight of this remarkable late-Victorian woman and the nature of late nineteenth-century imperialism.’ – Professor Shula Marks, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London
