dc.description.abstract Focuses on the experiences of traders and taximen in Qwaqwa, the smallest of South Africa's "homelands". It investigates the extent to which small-scale entrepreneurs of various kinds can be seen to be participating in processes of class formation within the homeland. Attention is focused away from the issue of poverty which has dominated rural research over the past decade. This thesis seeks to contribute to existing studies of class formation in the homelands, which address the problem from the perspective of "state" and "capital". This study attempts to broaden this focus through an historical analysis of social processes at local level. It argues that traders and taximen in Qwaqwa cannot simply be regarded as the recipients of state initiatives, but are agents in forging their own opportunities and relationships. en
