Book News Annotation:

Cottrell (history and American studies, California State U., Chico) examines how apartheid created an "arbitrary border" in South Africa, a country which had supposedly shed to some extent the "arbitrary border" of racist stereotyping associated with colonialism. He describes the lingering aftereffects of early South African history and resulting identity, the creation of the Natal and Boer republics, the confederation of these states that led to both union and bloody conflict, the creation of the apartheid system that came as a reaction, the international protest that arose to apartheid and resulted in its repeal, and the efforts to build a new South Africa. Cottrell provides close-up views of some of the more prominent participants, a chronology, and period photographs with his text.
