"[a] solid job of treading familiar territory, and offer excellent coverage of some of the political dynamics of the 1990s….[s]uccessfully narrates the key moments in the past and does a particularly fine job of the 1980s and 1990s….[w]ould also work well as an introductory text to South African history for students outside South Africa who would be unfamiliar with the larger narrative sketched here."
