Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article discusses the various factors leading to the development of a sense of ethnic consciousness and nationalism among the Zulu during the period of 1920 to approximately 1989. Some of the factors discussed in the text are internal social change within the society itself, acculturation (e.g., through missionaries and government administrators), capitalist economic development in the region, rural to urban population movements, and the cumulative effect of the ideologies of political parties, labor organizations (the national Industrial and Commercial Workers Union), and the Zulu Cultural Society, in solidifying new social concepts. One other feature of this document that deserves attention is the changing role of women in Zulu society. This information is presented in some detail in the text.
