Abstract

205 In part three, James North devotes 2 chapters to tracing the history of the major African liberation movements in South Africa; the African National Congress which now operates from exile because it is banned in South Africa. He describes how and why it changed from a nonviolent struggle to a violent one. In the last chapter, Nqrth appeals to Americans and westerners to bring their conscience to bear on the South African situation. He does this by indicating how foreign investments bolsters the apartheid regime, how the racist regime is on the brink of being like NAZI Germany under Adolf Hitler if it is not already. North clearly portrays the apartheid economy as being parasitic on the impoverished economies of the South African region and the impoverished economies of the South African region and the black ramshackles inside South Africa known as Bantustans and townships. One problem with the book however, is that it does not provide any suggestions for what an individual reader who wants to contribute towards the elimination of apartheid can do. This book is highly recommended for scholars of Southern African history, Racial and Ethnic Studies, Politics of Southern Africa and of course
