Yet they disputed among themselves who were the "true" South Africans, and therefore who should form the government. Botha is persuaded to step down. A great drama unfolds - of struggle, triumph and disaster; of hopes fulfilled and dashed - as the advocates of competing forms of nationalism seek to gain control of the state.

    With the ANC and PAC leaders in prison or in exile, and with the nation vigorously policed, the late s are a relatively quiet time. Chapters 1, 2, 7, and 11 examine the impact of world wars, nationalism, ethnic wars, genocide, and racism in Rwanda, Korea, Japan, Poland, Germany, Canada, and South Africa, as well as how different church denominations have responded to them. And he must confront the unrealistic hope of South Africa's poor and unemployed for instant remedies - a hope fuelled by the ANC's election slogan 'a better life for all'. This book is well researched and magisterial in both its content and style, and will be a reference book for many years to come. Readership An innovative examination of the forces - both destructive and dynamic - which have shaped twentieth-century South Africa.
