Since the last illustrated history of South Africa was published, far-reaching changes have affected not only the country, but the writing of history itself. In the New History of South Africa, 31 of South Africa’s foremost share fresh insights and new approaches to the story of this country. Up-to-date international research is woven into a readable narrative history that makes the past come alive. Readable, yet authoritative, this is the story of South Africa, as it has not been told before.
