Book Description

Originally published between 1931 and 1994 these books cover the turbulent racial history and politics of South Africa as well as economic and social aspects. Their authors include one of the premier historians of British imperial policy and African history, as well as many who were active in the political fight to end the apartheid system, some of whom were imprisoned or exiled for their beliefs.

The volumes discuss:

  • The complexities of the relationships between peoples of different racial origins
  • The widely differing economic and cultural standards within one country – inequalities which continue to exist today


  • Trace the history and growth of Apartheid in South Africa
  • Provide novel data for sociological, political and strategic reassessment of South Africa.
  • Explore the development of the gold and diamond mining industries and their effect on the South African economy and its labour force
  • Examine the ways in which American and South African culture have been fascinated with and influenced by one another
  • Provide students with easily accessible historical primary sources.
