Although British-born, John Allen lived in South Africa from 1954 to 1990, a 36-year period during which the country experienced its most climactic--and sometimes terrible--events.

Speaking from firsthand knowledge and with an intimate understanding of the situation, the author takes us beyond the media hype that so dominated Western television screens to answer some of the most vital questions concerning the apartheid era:

  • Who originated the system of government the world grew to hate so much?
  • Was South Africa the only 'apartheid' nation?
  • Did economic sanctions have the desired effect?
  • How did Washington's domestic agenda affect US foreign policy?
  • What was the West's real motive in forcing the country to its knees?
  • Why did Nelson Mandela's release from prison exacerbate rather than diminish violence?

Apartheid South Africa addresses these and a host of other issues, bringing to light little-known facts concerning historical detail and providing the reader with eyewitness accounts of day-to-day life in one of the most dangerous countries in the world.
