Would recommend it to anyone who would like to know history of South Africa and has not got the time or inclination to read through history books.
The History in an Hour series is such a great and simple idea you wonder why no-one thought of it before.
The format is the same as the other books in the series with a sweeping overview of the main events in a time period that sweeps from WW2 through to present day. No doubt a South African expert would name events that have been missed out but it certainly covers all the main points, events and double dealings of the white majority.
After the main, very readable, narrative there are brief biographies of the main protagonists in the story.
As ever a great starting point to understand a subject from which you can dive into other, far more detailed, books with an understanding of the grand sweep of history.
The format is very easy to read and when I finished the book, I couldn't wait to read other history in an hour books.
This is an excellent series and is particularly good for those who would like an overview rather than a detailed knowledge of historical events.

Easy to read and works well as a beginners guide to South Africa. I would recommend further research and reading as it doesn't go in depth as it is a short book.Published 5 months ago by Melina Galeano
This is an excellent short history of a nation which has had a troubled recent past. It's a great introduction for students wishing to know more about the world we live in today.Published 5 months ago by Dave Hart
