An American sociologist and the industrial relations director of the Anglo-American Corporation assemble an articulate group of mostly white "moderates" to argue the plausibility of nonviolent evolution toward a democratic future in South Africa. Longer on theory than facts and trends, they make a credible case for a democratic socialist option (particularly in the chapter by Pieter Le Roux). Nonetheless, their strategy has a fundamental problem: the only existing black group that fits into their near-term scenarios is the largely tribal Inkatha movement of Chief Gatsha Buthelezi.
