South Africaexamines the history of South Africa during the 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 1970s and 1980s, to its eventual collapse in the 1990s. It highlights the internal contradictions of white supremacy and demonstrates how black opposition, from that of Nelson Mandela to thousands of ordinary people, finally brought an end to white minority rule. This edition has an expanded section on the impact of apartheid, including urbanization, the police state and the death of Nelson Mandela and legacy into the future. With an extensive set of documents to give insight into the minds of those who fashioned and those who opposed apartheid, and a Chronology, Glossary, Who's Who of leading figures and updated Guide to Further Reading and online sources, this book provides students with the most up-to-date and succinct introduction to the ideology and practice of apartheid in South Africa.
