Apartheid in Crisis

Edited by Mark A. Uhlig

Vintage Books, 1986, 334 pp.

This useful collection brings together speeches and writings of representative South Africans including ANC leader Nelson Mandela, Bishop Tutu, President P. W. Botha, novelists Nadine Gordimer and Mothobi Mutloatse, and right-wing leader Andries Treurnicht, whose voices together evoke the complicated dissonances of South Africa today. Framed by analyses of black and white politics, black unions, the country's economy and its foreign relations, the book provides a readable introduction to South Africa for a lay audience.
