About the Author

Saul Dubow is professor of history at the University of Sussex. Born in South Africa and educated at the Universities of Cape Town and Oxford, he has written key books on the history of racial segregation and apartheid; the history of scientific racism in South Africa, and the history of colonial science. He has edited several collections and is considered to be a leading authority on race, nationalism and identity in modern South Africa.


...an important and fresh contribution to the historiography. For the first time in very many years, intellectual history takes centre stage and opens up new terrain. Jane Carruthers, South African Historical Journal A Commonwealth of Knowledge is much more than a mere synthesis since Dubow sheds new light on interconnections and contexts. Only an author like him who is able to cover such a broad range of historical interests, and who over the years collected such an immense and impressive knowledge about details and contexts, could write a book like this. Christoph Marx, African History A welcome addition to recent scholarship Daniel Gilfoyle, African Affairs
