Title:Resistance in the reserves: the A.A.C. and the Transkei
Author:Bundy, C.ISNI
Periodical:Africa Perspective
Geographic terms:Transkei

Subjects:All African Convention

Abstract:In the late 1940s and 1950s, the South African state sought to restructure aspects of life in the 'reserves'. Most of these attempts provoked resistance. This article examines resistance in one reserve: Transkei, and describes the interaction between rural grievances shaping local struggles in the Transkei and the efforts of a particular political organisation, the All African Convention (AAC), to articulate, link and broaden these struggles.
