A leading scholar of South Africa provides a fresh and penetrating exploration of that country's history from the earliest known human habitation to the present, focusing primarily on the experiences of its black inhabitants. This third edition includes two new chapters that describe the transfer of power and the new South Africa under the presidencies of Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki.

Provides a very thorough and nuianced history of Pre-colonial and even Pre-historic South Africa. This was very useful in assisting my high school students with colonization research. Thanks
