Tigers in Africa Summary

Tigers in Africa: Stalking the Past at the Cape of Good Hope by Carmel Schrire

This volume interweaves such diverse themes as colonial slavery and apartheid, human and carnivore evolution and science and romance, to show how we create the past and understand the present. It recounts the significance of the palaeontological findings of Raymond Dart, Robert Ardrey and Glynn Isaac, addressing a famous dispute about carnivore evolution that flourished in the heyday of apartheid. It sets pioneering exploration of the globe against archaeological surveys and romance quests in the African desert and contrasts the dark days of colonial slavery at the Cape with the bright prospects of Nelson Mandela's legacy there.
