South Africa: The Rise and Fall of Apartheid examines the history of South Africa from 1948 to the present day, covering the introduction of the oppressive policy of apartheid when the Nationalists came to power, its mounting opposition in the 1970s and 1980s, its eventual collapse in the 1990s, and its legacy up to the present day.

Fully revised, the third edition includes:

  • new material on the impact of apartheid, including the social and cultural effects of the urbanization that occurred when Africans were forced out of rural areas
  • analysis of recent political and economic issues that are rooted in the apartheid regime, particularly continuing unemployment and the emergence of opposition political parties such as the Economic Freedom Fighters
  • an updated Further Reading section, reflecting the greatly increased availability of online materials
  • an expanded set of primary source documents, providing insight into the minds of those who enforced apartheid and those who fought it.

Illustrated with photographs, maps and figures and including a chronology of events, glossary and Who’s Who of key figures, this essential text provides students with a current, clear, and succinct introduction to the ideology and practice of apartheid in South Africa.

Review:

"South Africa: The rise and fall of apartheid provides a detailed, informed, and highly readable introduction to the major themes concerning apartheid South Africa, its development, evolution, and ultimately its collapse. It offers a quick and informative entry point for those new to South African history, covering a broad overview of key political, societal and economic issues. What makes this book particularly useful is the section assessing the diverse historiography, supplemented by a range of key primary documents from across the apartheid era. An analytical and accessible insight into apartheid South Africa."

Matthew Graham, University of Dundee, UK 

"Clark and Worger’s South Africa remains one of the most relevant yet accessible texts for students of Apartheid. Including key timelines, source documents and analytical essays this 3rd edition shows the universal demand for this important work which has been updated to incorporate life in post-Apartheid South Africa up to 2015."

Nicholas J. Evans, University of Hull, UK

"The 3rd edition of Clark & Worger's South Africa is a wonderfully concise but extremely thorough account of apartheid, which makes the complexities and contradictions of modern South African history accessible to undergraduate students. The addition of electronic resources, films, and suggestions for further reading in the the 3rd edition not only complement the combination of narrative and primary sources within the text, but also serve as a valuable tool for instructional course design and student research. It is an ideal text for an undergraduate classroom."

Molly McCullers, University of West Georgia, USA 

"This revised edition offers a timely and relevant introduction to a complex and still contested period of South Africa’s past. It is thoughtfully expanded to include primary sources and recent historiography which emphasize the social dimensions and repercussions of apartheid. Teachers and students of South African history will find the historical documents and the updated further reading (with new visual and online sources) sections particularly useful resources."

Rebekah Lee, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK
