After nearly 300 years of White hegemony, the subcontinent of Southern Africa is on verge of transformation - the end of the world's last racial oligarchy. As this process unfolds the fault lines created by centuries of White rule are beginning to shift and in doing so, they have released the pent-up fears of Blacks and Whites. This book examines the climate of fear as thousands die in political violence, and locates the origin of apartheid in fear. It explores how fear threatens to poison the future as it has the past. Chapters include: the Boipatong Massacre; the White middle-class; the last White Parliament; the Afrikaaner bitter-enders; the Black radical left; White working-class life; the Zulus, soldiers, spies and killers; and the ANC. The book concludes with the swearing-in of the new President - Nelson Mandela.
