Born in the Netherlands, raised in South Africa, educated there and in British and Continental universities, a teacher and writer of history in American universities who has specialized in the study of the British Empire, Dr. De Kiewiet, now President of the University of Rochester, is exceptionally well placed to analyze the critical developments in South Africa. This he does with penetration and style, exposing the "delusion of apartheid" but going beyond to elucidate the issues of nationalism and racialism in that troubled society. These are the first Whidden Lectures at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario.
