"With the present study, the National Archives has realised a long-cherished plan, namely to extend the source publications to include historical manuscripts based on archival research. While the standard rules of scholarly discourse observed in other issues of ARCHEIA, have been followed in this edition as well, the views expressed, and the terminology used, are the author's alone, and do not necessarily reflect the viewpoints or policies of the National Archives. Brigitte Lau's thesis, which was originally submitted to the University of Cape Town for a Masters degree in history in 1982 (under the title of: The emergence of Kommando politics in Namaland, Southern Namibia, 1800-1870), has been selected for publication primarily because it reflects a period of the country's history which has been hitherto widely ignored by historians. To understand the history of the last century, Brigitte Lau has followed a new approach but bases her arguments entirely on sources found in various local and South African archives and other institutions. Before publication the text was critically evaluated by two scholars, Prof. E. L. P. Stals of the Academy, Windhoek, and Ben Fuller of Boston University." -- A. C. Stern, Chief: National Archives, July 1987

Series Note: The full name of this series is Archeia: Windhoek Archives Source Publication Series, but it is commonly referred to simply as the Archeia series. The series was launched in 1984 by the publisher, the Archives Service Division, Department of National Education, Windhoek, South West Africa. In 1990 South West Africa was granted independence under the name of the Republic of Namibia. So the place of publication of this series would henceforth be Windhoek, Namibia. The publisher until independence has commonly been referred to as the National Archives, Windhoek, South West Africa (SWA), and then after independence as the National Archives of Namibia, Windhoek, Namibia.
