Review:

Basil Davidson has said that the great value of his books ... is that they sheer through the veils of deceit and deception beyond which, till lately, Pretoria has sought to achieve its aims. NEW SOCIETY A unique approach differentiates this extremely timely book from all the other new books on South Africa...Both academic and public libraries should have this. LIBRARY JOURNAL ...comprehensive in its coverage, exacting in its standards of description and interpretation and almost faultless in its use of source material and existing literature of the subject...an ideal guide to the informed and uninformed alike. ANTI-APARTHEID NEWS ...presents much evidence to show how ruthlessly and effectively the South African government has been in deploying its military and economic superiority to neutralize the capacity of the neighbouring states to combat apartheid. NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS ...a sensitivity and awareness of the subtle differences which dictate the degree of resistance to South Africa's policies that various countries can afford.THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

From Library Journal:

A unique approach differentiates this extremely timely book from all the other new books on South Africa. Ignoring internal issues, Hanlon (a former BBC correspondent) gives a detailed treatment of South Africa's relations with eight neighboring states. He demonstrates how South Africa has attempted (and usually succeeded) to destabilize these sovereign states with a combination of military and economic acts and Machiavellian diplomacy. Well researched and documented, the book shows the magnitude of South Africa's power in the region, and while Hanlon argues for international sanctions, he unintentionally shows how South Africa will probably survive their effects. Both academic and public libraries should have this. John J. Grotpeter, Political Science Dept., St. Louis Coll. of Pharmacy
