About the author (1995)

ALBERT GRUNDLINGH is currently the Head of the History Department at the University of Stellenbosch. He is the author of two books, co-author of two and has also edited three books besides publishing a combined total of 60 articles and chapters in various books. Many of his publications have appeared in leading international journals. He specializes in social and cultural history with a particular interest in war and society. His major works deal with the so-called "Handsuppers" and "Joiners" during the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902, Black South African troops during the First World War, and he would like to think that the book he has co-written on rugby and South African society is akin to dealing with the phenomenon of war in a different format.
