about

South Africa will be dealing with the legacy of apartheid for generations. Dr. Jacqueline Kalley has had the foresight and vision to document the experiences of black library users during South Africa's years of apartheid, focusing her studies on the second half of the twentieth century, when apartheid reached its zenith. Apartheid in South African Libraries is an in-depth study of the effect of apartheid on public, provincial, and community library services in South Africa. With a high degree of accuracy and objectivity, Dr. Kalley documents the past record and experiences of black libraries. She masterfully integrates the numerous aspects of this complicated subject including historical, legal, and resource concerns. A historical introduction helps provide background and context for the work, and an index, bibliography, and photographs round out the book.
Jacqueline A. Kalley is Research Associate in the Department of Politics at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.

Editorial Reviews

The book is recommended as essential reading for all scholars of public history in South Africa. It can also provide an excellent synopsis of such history for South African library and information science (LIS) students...of value to anyone involved in public and community library services in which minority and disadvantaged groups are involved.
