Description - South Africa 1948-1994 by Rosemary Mulholland
Rosemary Mulholland's new book focuses on the struggle by the black majority for political and social freedom in South Africa. The book begins with an account of the origins of racism, segregation and republicanism before 1948. It then concentrates on the history of South Africa following the establishment of the apartheid regime. Topics include apartheid in practice, the emergence of protest movements, the Sharpeville massacre, the growing pressures for change, the end of apartheid and Nelson Mandela's appointment as president. This highly illustrated text is based around lead questions and activities. It provides essential knowledge through background briefings; encourages analysis of the issues through investigations; contains review sections to aid clarity and allow students opportunities for revision.
