Charles Feinstein surveys five hundred years of South African economic history from the years preceding European settlements in 1652 through to the post-Apartheid era. Following the early phase of slow growth, he charts the transformation of the economy as a result of the discovery of diamonds and gold in the 1870s, and the rapid rise of industry in the wartime years. Finally, emphasizing the ways by which the black population was deprived of land, and induced to supply labor for white farms, mines and factories, Feinstein documents the introduction of apartheid after 1948, and its consequences for economic performance,

Setting the context: South Africa in international perspective
Seizing the land: conquest and dispossession
Making the labour force: Coercion and discrimination
Creating the colour bar: formal barriers, poor whites, and 'civilized' labour
Exporting the gold: the vital role of the mineral revolution
Transforming the economy: the rise of manufacturing and commercial agriculture
Separating the races: the imposition of apartheid
Forcing the pace: rapid progress despite constraints
Hitting the barriers: from triumph to disaster
Confronting the contradictions: the final crisis and the retreat from apartheid
