Why are we more prosperous than our ancestors? How can an Indonesian volcano explain the Great Trek? What do King Zwelithini and Charlemagne have in common? Johan Fourie explores these questions and many more in this entertaining, accessible economic history spanning. Skatryk is an engaging guide to complex debates about the roots and reasons for prosperity. Join the author on this enriching journey through an African-centred history.
