The U.S. Anti-Apartheid Movement: Local Activism in Global Politics
By Janice Love
Praeger, 1985, 296 pp.

Much more narrowly focused than its title implies, this study is exhaustive and highly informative on the sanctions aimed at the state governments in Michigan and Connecticut. In establishing context, the author does take a stab at discussing the possible effects of sanctions, but fails to explore in any depth the roots of the anti-apartheid movement in the United States, particularly the key role of blacks.
