Born into a Xhosa royal family around 1792 in South Africa, Jan Tzatzoe was destined to live in an era of profound change - one that witnessed the arrival and entrenchment of European colonialism. This book analyzes his contributions to the colonial world to argue for the crucial role of Africans as agents of cultural and intellectual change.
