ABSTRACT
A comparison is made in this article between representations of history in Namibian schoolbooks published shortly before and just after the country's independence. The aim is to analyse their underlying narratives and images of history and to relate these to contemporary political transformations. This comparison shows clearly that within this specific political context - and in contrast to 20th-century experiences in Central Europe - the dissemination of a national narrative in Namibia needs to be viewed as a progressive endeavour.
