Up Against Apartheid: The Role and the Plight of the Press in South Africa
Up Against Apartheid: The Role and the Plight of the Press in South Africa
By Richard Pollak
Southern Illinois University Press, 1981, 157 pp.

This richly anecdotal essay describes the maze of restrictions circumscribing South Africa's press, and the rigidly controlled content of South African television. Unfortunately, the author provides only scanty coverage of the influential Afrikaans newspapers.
