What’s it about?

Focusing on the rise and fall of Apartheid, this new introductory text explores the history of South Africa from 1948, when the Nationalists came to power, until its dramatic collapse in the 1990s. Two introductory chapters set the system of Apartheid in historical context, looking at the origins of population, slavery and early manifestations of racism, and the consolidation of white rule. The core of this book focuses on how Apartheid evolved during the Nationalist period, the rise of the opposition and the collapse of the system, through to its continuing legacy today.

Review:

"...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

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.

Nancy L. Clark is Professor of History and Dean of the Honors College at Louisiana State University. William H. Worger is Professor of History at the University of California, Los Angeles.
