Title:The historical origins of the Transkei's boundaries
Author:Ross, RobertISNI
Periodical:African Perspectives
Geographic terms:Transkei
South Africa
Abstract:In the negotiations between the Government of the Republic of South Africa and the leaders of the Transkei over the past few years, the topic on which there has been most disagreement has been the Land Question. Once they realised that their demands were not going to be met, the Transkeian authorities retreated and they accepted independence, in October 1976, on the basis of their present territory. The author describes how the Transkei came to be what it was, and exposes the historical process whereby the two territorial blocks which make up the Transkei came to be delineated as they are. This is done in the following parts: The country and the people - The Western boundary - The Eastern boundary - Griqualand East - The North-East - The coast. Notes; maps of the Transkei.
