Overview

English summary: South Africa can look at millennia of history and is seen mankind's place of origin. With the arrival of the first ship of the dutch East India company the colonial history of South Africa - the forced immigration of slaves and the systematic subjection of indigene peoples - began. 20th century's Apartheid led to stronger racism, which became the foundation of a state order. This work gives memorable and plausible information on the history of the state up to current events. Next to a presentation to the political history, focusing on the 20th century, this work introduces to the many faced south African economic, cultural and social history. German description: Sudafrika blickt auf eine jahrtausendealte Geschichte zuruck, es gilt als Ursprungsort der Menschheit. Mit dem Eintreffen der ersten Schiffe der niederlandischen Ostindien-Handelskompanie begann die Kolonialgeschichte Sudafrikas, die Zwangseinwanderung von Sklaven und die systematische Unterwerfung der indigenen Bevolkerung. Die Apartheidpolitik des 20. Jahrhunderts bedeutete eine Verscharfung des Rassismus, der zur Grundlage der Staatsordnung wurde. Dieser Band vermittelt einpragsam und eingangig grundlegende Informationen zur Geschichte des Landes bis in die unmittelbare Gegenwart. Das Buch bietet neben der politischen Ereignisgeschichte mit einem Schwerpunkt auf dem 20. Jahrhundert auch facettenreiche Einblicke in die sudafrikanische Wirtschafts-, Kultur- und Sozialgeschichte.
