First published in 1815 as TRAVELS IN SOUTH AFRICA. For the 1834 second edition, abridged and revised, Rev.

Campbell was sent out by The Missionary Society.

Unless we do this, we will continue to project our own self-rejection onto the life around us. We will continue to blame other persons, societies, nations and races for that in ourselves which we fear. This projected animosity, multiplied among us, leads to the strife that ends in hate, violence and, eventually, to war." - Introduction.
