Abstract: 

A leading scholar of South Africa provides a fresh and penetrating exploration of that country's history, from the earliest know human inhabitation of the region to the present, focusing primarily on the experiences of its black inhabitants. For this third edition, Leonard Thompson adds two new chapters that describe the transfer to power and the new South Africa under the presidencies of Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki.
