A book by Carolyn Hamilton examining how the historical image of Shaka has been produced and has been reimagined by different groups at various points in time. The work notably advanced a source critical approach in which the historical background of a source and context in which that source was made is examined to determine how these factors shaped the nature of the evidence.
