Книга характеризует sixty three семейства пауков, которые присутствуют в регионе, встречаясь не только в пустынях, лесах, на морских берегах, но и в загородных домах. Пауки подразделены на строящих ловчие сети, живущих на почве и на растениях, что, вместе с графическими символами и черно-белыми диаграммами диагностических свойств, обеспечивает быструю и легкую идентификацию в полевых условиях.

One cannot understand how Africans have endured the fragmentation of their family life by migrant labor unless one has knowledge of their customary social values and networks. Nor can one fathom the vigor of black resistance to the apartheid state without knowledge of precolonial African ideas about the social and economic obligations of rulers and rights of subjects, and the basis of political legitimacy. The precolonial inhabitants of Southern Africa, however, were not literate, and there are peculiar difficulties in reconstructing the history of preliterate societies.
