Abstract:This account of kinship in the 'Coloured' township of Ocean View, near Cape Town, leads to the conclusion that kinship remains an ideological and practical basis for identity and security for the people and as such provides part of an explanation why the township, developed initially under unhappy and demoralizing circumstances, now has a relatively low incidence of crime, violence and squalor Sections: the ideology of kinship - residence and the family - kinsfolk beyond the household - exogamy and affinity - kinship and the world. Ref., notes, tables.
