Reviews

"This is a useful, often perceptive summary of the foundations of apartheid, the laws and practices that constituted apartheid after 1950, and the working out and then undoing of apartheid in the 1980s....Upper-division undergraduates and above."-Choice
"The Rise, Fall, and Legacy of Apartheid is an ambitious discussion of the much-contested history of twentieth-century South Africa, written with the express purpose of making that history accessible to non-specialists."-African History

?If I had to recommend a single book to anyone interested in learning about the origins and effects of South Africa's apartheid system, it would be this one by Eric Louw. He has given one of the most succinct accounts I have ever read.....Louw lays out in great detail the theory of apartheid, arguing that "at heat, apartheid was a radical survival plan," but he then shows how that theory changed with events. His historical account of apartheid is both comprehensive and readable, while his chronology of the building of apartheid provides an excellent teaching and learning tool....[o]ne cannot but praise the overall use of this fine work.?-African Studies Review
