Podcast #17 is up. This one tells the tale of the larger-than-life 18th Century Boer frontiersman Coenraad de Buys: Hunter, trekker, rebel, lover of multitudes of native women, founder of his own distinct tribe.
Coenraad de Buys really is an avatar for borderlands history — a living example of the principles the great historian Pekka Hämäläinen (The Comanche Empire; Lakota America) laid out: spatial mobility, situational identity, local contingency, and the ambiguities of power.
