As South Africa moves towards majority rule, and blacks begin to exercise direct political power, apartheid becomes a thing of the past - but its legacy in South African history will be indelible. this book is designed to introduce students to a range of interpretations of one of South Africa's central social characteristics: racial segregation. It:

• brings together eleven articles which span the whole history of segregation from its origins to its final collapse

• reviews the new historiography of segregation and the wide variety of intellectual traditions on which it is based

• includes a glossary, explanatory notes and further reading.
