In the revised version of this acclaimed work Leonard Thompson has added a new chapter outlining the country's remarkable transition from a racist political order to a democratic one. A substantial new preface has also been added, and footnotes have been expanded. Above all, this penetrating exploration of South Africa's history - from the earliest known human settlement of the region to the present - focuses primarily on the experiences of its black inhabitants, rather than those of its white minority.
