This work, as its title would suggest, is a testament to the fact that economic sanctions are effective instruments of change in South Africa. George W. Shepherd, Jr. and the other contributing writers provide us with a glimpse inside South Africa, as well as a reflection of the changing nature of international order. In this respect, Shepherd and the others teach us a valuable lesson in the use and effectiveness of economic sanctions in influencing the internal affairs of other nations in order to limit human rights violations. After an introductory chapter on effective sanctions and the economic impact in South Africa, contributed chapters demonstrate that the movement for racial equality in the world is not spent. Others point to the role of non-governmental organizations in ending racial discrimination, the possibility of increasing sanctions, the shift in United States policy to a comprehensive anti-apartheid stance, and the replacement of military means of intervention by international economic measures. This is concluded by a thorough bibliography and helpful indices which document the actions taken against South Africa.
