Prologue through Chapter 5 1. Jim Wooten begins the book by giving a history of the effect of British imperialism on the Zulu tribe. What effect did the British have on the Zulu people? Why do you think Wooten gives you this background information? The British people had a very bad effect on the Zulu people. Wooten doesn’t give very much information about it, but I think he added what he did to show the long history of abuse towards the black people in Zululand. 2. How did the changed Zulu cultural norms set up conditions that favored the spread of HIV infection? Which sections of the population in South Africa are affected by the disease? Men stopped caring for their families back at home and started new lives in the cities. The women back home stopped believing in strong loyal marriages. Also “faced with a vast void that represented both their past and their future... thousands [of Zulu girls] around the country fashioned their own alternate version of happiness in one pregnancy after another. ...thousands of them were simply practicing polygamy in reverse… without the sense of family that had once been the strength of the tribe”(J. Woooten, 2004). This increasingly normal occurance favored the spread of HIV. It is even more common among the more poverty stricken population of South Africa. 3. After the British transferred control of South Africa to the Afrikaner government, the system of apartheid was put in place. What was apartheid? What was its effect on the black people of South Africa? How did it affect their access to healthcare?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
