This book focuses on the struggle for political and social freedom by the black majority in South Africa. The book begins with an account of the origins of racism, segregation and republicanism before 1948. It then concentrates on the history of South Africa following the establishment of the apartheid regime. Topics include apartheid in practice, the emergence of protest movements, the Sharpeville massacre, the pressures for change and the end of apartheid culminating in Nelson Mandela's appointment as president. This highly illustrated text is based around lead questions and activities; provides essential knowledge through background briefings; encourages analysis of the issues through investigations; contains review sections to aid clarity and allow students opportunities for revision.
