South Africa in Transition

Price $18.00

Vol. 18, Nos. 1-2 (1991)

This double issue was assembled by editor Gregory Shank, who was in South Africa at the time Nelson Mandela was released from prison and the African National Congress was unbanned, effectively signaling the end of legal apartheid. The issue deals with the transformation of apartheid into constitutional structures that seek to create a unitary, nonracial state there. Articles by scholar activists examine the economic, political, and ethnic-cultural obstacles standing in the way of attaining this goal. The American Library Association's Social Responsibility Round Table commended this issue for introducing the public to clearly written essays by black and white South Africans on their efforts to create post-apartheid institutions. 300 pages.
