"...this text appears unparalleled in providing a quick and accessible guide to apartheid and its various facets."
H-Net, Christopher J. Lee, Department of History, Harvard University--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
From the Back Cover
Apartheid was an oppressive and brutal system of racial discrimination that captured and appalled world opinion during the latter half of the twentieth century. South Africa: The Rise and Fall of Apartheid examines the history of South Africa during this period of apartheid: from 1948 when the Nationalists came to power, through to the collapse of the system in the 1990s.
Written in a clear and accessible manner, the book:
- charts the history of the apartheid regime, starting with the institution of the policy, through the mounting opposition in the 1970’s and 1980’s, to its eventual collapse in the 1990’s
- highlights the internal contradictions of white supremacy
- demonstrates how black opposition, from that of Nelson Mandela to that of thousands of ordinary people, finally brought an end to white minority rule
- provides an extensive set of documents to give insight into the minds of those who fashioned and those who opposed apartheid
- discusses the subsequent legacy of apartheid
Also containing a Chronology, Glossary, Who’s Who of leading figures and Guide to Further Reading, this book provides students with the most up-to-date and succinct introduction to the ideology and practice of apartheid in South Africa.
