Constitutional Reform and Apartheid

By L. J. Boulle
St. Martin's, 1984
270 pp. $27.50

This authoritative volume details thoroughly and succinctly the process and product of South Africa's recent constitutional reform. The author, a South African lawyer, effectively disposes of its architects' "consociational" pretensions (claiming kinship with modes of government by consensus among groups, as in Switzerland). He also points to a future in which the distinction between "citizen" and "noncitizen" rather than between races will become the justification for white control over blacks in South Africa.
