This sweeping one-volume narrative surveys the whole range of South African history from earliest times until 1990. The fourth edition synthesises recent scholarship, especially in the areas of prehistory and the conflicts of the early nineteenth century, while the country's internal political story is updated to the release of Nelson Mandela, and its external relations to the independence of Namibia.
