Following the format of the first volume South Africa: In Transition to What? (1988), each of the chapters in this second volume focuses on a specific segment or segments of the jigsaw puzzle from which South Africa's future will be assembled, and is datelined to emphasize how the situation, event, or issue being addressed appeared through a particular set of lenses at a particular time in what is likely to be a prolonged transition. The volume seeks to impress upon readers (especially Americans) that the post-apartheid South Africa now in the process of emerging will be determined primarily by internal factors. "Eminent Persons" interlocutors, distinguished advisory committees, economic and diplomatic sanctions, and other externally devised initiatives affected but can not mandate how South Africa's long-fractured society is to find its way. The expert contributors to this volume come from a range of geographical and professional bases but share one important qualification: residence or repeated physical presence in South Africa.
