The Politics of South Africa
The Politics of South Africa
By Howard Brotz
Oxford University Press, 1977, 164 pp.

Drawing its main recommendations from the 1948 report of the South African United Party's Fagan Commission, this work by an American sociologist seems several decades out of tune with the times. More interesting than Brotz' rather vague prescriptions for "consultation" with urban blacks is his case - unproven but provocative - for a significant shift in the internal dynamics of Nationalist politics: i.e., an end to the consistent movement of power to the Right.
