Anti-Apartheid: Transnational Conflict and Western Policy in the Liberation of South Africa
Anti-Apartheid: Transnational Conflict and Western Policy in the Liberation of South Africa
By George W. Shepherd, Jr.
Greenwood Press, 1977, 246 pp

This highly knowledgeable survey of the evolution of the Western anti-apartheid movement contrasts the activism of non-governmental organizations with the foot-dragging of Western governments - particularly on the U.N. arms embargo. Shepherd, however, overextends the pessimism implicit in his material when he dismisses the possibility - and even the potential significance - of effective Western governmental action against apartheid.
