The book does not have a table of contents, but it does come with an unusually full index and a ‘genealogy’ of the Zulu royal house.
The majority of the work concerns the struggles in power, politics and war in eastern Southern Africa during the nineteenth century, concentrating particularly on the arrival of the British in the region and its dealings and collisions with the Zulu nation as tensions flared between Boers, British and Zulus.
