The growing interest in the South African situation makes this handbook a useful addition to almost any library's shelves. The author, a South African now living and working as a journalist in London, has gathered together in a very usable way facts about the reality of the system of racial discrimination in South Africa. An introduction gives a brief history of the development of apartheid. A map showing the location of the homelands is included. Topics covered in brief informative chapters include race classification, health, education, pass laws, removals, security services and law, banning orders, the churches, the press and some 30 other topics. An appendix on the state of emergency in the summer of 1985 brings the book up to the present. Recommended for most libraries. Maidel Cason, Northwestern Univ. Lib., Evanston, Ill.

South Africa's policy of racial segregation is the subject of this straightforward reference book, which delineates the day-to-day workings of the legal divisions between the white minority and the Indian, "colored," and black majority. A question-and-answer format treats a broad range of subjects: which beaches are for whites only, which races must carry pass books, etc. Statistics and individual examples further inform readers about the social implications of South Africa's complicated marriage laws, banning orders and homeland policies. It is reported here, for example, that the doctor-to-population ratio for blacks is 1:12,000, for whites 1:330. Omond, a South African journalist, provides hard facts for the worldwide debate on apartheid; his impassive, textbook-like tone makes the telling all that more shocking. January
