For students and specialists, this useful and timely roundup of reflections on 1994's historic South African elections is written mainly by South African academics. Robert Mattes offers an analysis of the four-year lead-up to the elections, including the choice of a proportional representation voting system. Tom Lodge explains how the African National Congress targeted its message to different sectors of the electorate. Hermann Giliomee describes how the mostly white National Party managed to attract the "coloured" and Indian minorities. Other contributors assess the role of smaller entities like the Inkatha Freedom Party and the white right-wing, and look at the media's role and the voting tallies. U.S. academic Timothy Sisk warns that, after the euphoria, South Africa has a long road to rebuild, and Arend Lijphart pronounces that the new governmental structure is as good as could have been designed. Reynolds authored Voting for a New South Africa.
