David Welsh is a political scientist with a historian’s cast of mind. In vigorous prose, The Rise and Fall of Apartheid recounts the history of apartheid, striking a suitable balance between the black and white sides of the struggle. Welsh has followed South African politics closely for decades, in personal contact with many of the major players. His book abounds in anecdotes, insights, and brief theoretical observations that will delight the cognoscenti and laypersons alike. Along with The Afrikaners by Hermann Giliomee, The Rise and Fall of Apartheid may dominate the historiography of apartheid for at least a generation.
