Summary:"Print, Text and Book Cultures in South Africa is a field-defining contribution to the country\2019s literary scholarship. Andrew van der Vlies\2019s introductory essay maps the conceptual terrain in a systematic and engaging way, illustrating its relevance to South Africa\2019s literary and cultural history. The essays that follow demonstrate the archival richness and liveliness of the field, while opening doors to future research. Beyond South Africa, the book will be exemplary in showing how book histories develop under postcolonial conditions"--Back cover.
