According to the book’s publisher, University of KwaZulu-Natal Press, this volume’s, “essays explore major themes in African and global history, including the colonial manipulation of kinship and the exploitation of labour, modernist practices of social engineering and the changes wrought within intimate relationships by post-industrial decline.”

Margaretten describes her chapter “Parting Homes in KwaZulu-Natal” as being, “about the processes of reconciliation that street youth undergo with their family members after they have run away from home. It addresses the estrangements of kinship ties as well as the possibilities of reuniting with family members who are alive and deceased (i.e. the ancestors).”
