Abstract:This study of Khoi banditry in the first two decades of the 19th century (a.o. based on court records) shows that Hermanns and his men fit the category of 'social banditry'. They were representatives of a 'disintegrating kinship society' who had been absorbed as 'landless labourers' into the pastoral, increasingly commercial economy of the Boers. They fought for a 'good' old order. Notes.
