Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Canis Africanis: A Dog History of Southern Africa contains list of illustrations and a notes on contributors. Dogs, like humans, are products both of culture and nature. For the past twelve thousand years they have been entangled with human societies. Dogs connect the wild with the tame. They occupy an ambiguous position, straddling the opposing spheres of nature and culture. They occupy warm stoeps, follow their masters at night, track insurgents, patrol borders, sniff out strangers, hunt game, protect homesteads and leave their pawprints all over the archives.
