Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This paper attempts to highlight some of the reasons why the political parties in KwaZulu-Natal, represented primarily by Inkatha and the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), were particularly attached to the notion of a federal constitution for the state. In the first part of this study the authors examine the historical and contemporary background to this attachment, then give close attention to the details of the IFP's KwaZulu-Natal constitutional proposal released in 1992. This is the most recent, and commprehensive, statement of the IFP's position regarding federalism, and it is reasonable to suppose that the principles enunciated in this document will play a significant part in shaping the IFP's perspective on the issue of a final constitution for some time to come (p. 434). In addition to the major topic noted above the authors also provide additional information on class, politics and political elites, custom, culture and the meaning of Zulu identity, the role of indigeneous leaders, and political violence in Zulu society.
