Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Livelihoods and Landscapes: The People of Guquka and Koloni and their Resources contains the acknowledgements, the editor’s note and a list of tables, figures, maps, and photos. Throughout the book certain terms are used that require explanation as some of them originate from previous political conjunctures. Use of the terms ‘Ciskei’ and ‘Transkei’ requires explanation. According to Switzer (1993) these names emerged during the times when whites were expanding eastward from the original place of settlement in the Cape. At about the same time the Xhosa were expanding westward and had crossed the Great Kei River. Thus from a colonial administration’s point of view Ciskei denoted ‘this side’ (the Cape Town side) of the Great Kei River and Transkei referred to the area across the Great Kei River.

Keywords: Ciskei; Great Kei River; Guquka; Koloni; Xhosa people
