Ovambo Politics in the Twentieth Century offers a paradigm shift from how studies typically treat the colonization of Africa. Using archival documentation from government and industry sources, Cooper offers a detailed historical analysis of the seven major communities comprising the Ovambo- Namibia's largest ethnic group. His examination reveals that these Ovambo communities engaged in competitive political relations with each other throughout the German colonial era as well as the subsequent occupation of territory by the white minority government of South Africa.
