"An outstanding collection, a kind of gathering of the harvest of 20 years of intense scholarly and political debate. The book will be required reading for anyone interested in the political and intellectual origins of apartheid."-Jim Campbell, Northwestern University "A most welcome reader for those wishing to follow the historical literature of the subject. It includes many of the key writings which influenced subsequent research and will continue to have an impact upon the way we look at the past."-A. J. Christopher, University of Port Elizabeth
