South Africa has recently undergone a transition from apartheid rule to democracy.The country still faces a host of political, economic, and social problems, but no longer the threat of civil war. This easy-to-use 2nd edition not only provides an update of the "new" South Africa, but expands on South Africa's complicated history as well, covering the period of British domination, conflicts between the Boers and the British, and the growth of African resistance to white rule. A comprehensive resource that covers history, politics, the economy, society and culture, this dictionary will appeal to the librarian, scholar, and student.
Christopher Saunders, Associate Professor in History at the University of Cape Town and formerly Head of Department. Nicholas Southey is senior lecturer in the History Department of the University of South Africa, Pretoria.
