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.
