I ve read a lot of books, mostly fiction, concerning apartheid and thought that I could not be amazed any Boy, was I wrong Among other things it shows the concept of apartheid through the eyes of Afrikaners, and it is still shocking Some of them truly believed they were doing the black man a favor It is a tough read though, lots and lots of dates and events.

This is one of the ten best books I ve read this year It won the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for Non Fiction The book gives a detailed account of how apartheid in South Africa has affected the whole country I m sorry it s taken me thnis long to read it. An excellent first hand account from a white journalist of the apartheid era Written during the later stages of apartheid, but before the end Touches many of the characters that are now in power in SA. Excellent look at life under Apartheid. When I was in college in the 80s, I took a political science class on apartheid This was our textbook I ve never forgotten it Excellent Inevitably now very dated as a study of South Africa, but a magnificent account of how it appeared to a liberal foreign journalist in the mid 1980s Lelyveld doesn t shy away from the brutalities of apartheid, but where he really excels is in demonstrating its absurdities He often achieves a bitter humor in detailing the tortured logic wherewith the government and individual white South Africans justified the racial status quo. I read this about 21 years ago while studying for the Foreign Service Officers exam I found it useful for my purposes Th is was also a time when there was a lot of focus on South Africa the Sun City album by Artists United Against Apartheid films like The Gods Must Be Crazy and Cry, The Beloved Country.
