Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A magisterial history of South Africa, from the earliest known human inhabitation of the region to the present. Lynn Berat updates this classic text with a new chapter chronicling the first presidential term of Mbeki and ending with the celebrations of the centenary of South Africas ruling African National Congress in January 2012.

 

“A history that is both accurate and authentic, written in a delightful literary style.”—Archbishop Desmond Tutu

 

“Should become the standard general text for South African history. . . . Recommended for college classes and anyone interested in obtaining a historical framework in which to place events occurring in South Africa today.”—Roger B. Beck, History: Reviews of New Books
