Containing more than 400 entries, this work provides an authoritative source of reference on South African history. It covers the area that came to comprise the geographical territory of modern South Africa and ranges from the earliest evidence of human occupation to the watershed democratic election of 1994. Entries include the people, events, organizations, acts of legislation and themes that have shaped the politics of the country, its economy, and its diverse social fabric. Extensive cross-referencing enables readers to use the longer thematic entries - such as British imperialism, apartheid or African nationalism - as starting points for exploring related topics. Key readings are suggested at the end of most of the entries, and the book concludes with a useful index to subjects that do not themselves have separate entries. Aimed at a wide audience, this work should be a useful resource not only for students of South African history but also for general readers who are interested in the country's past and the ways in which it continues to influence the present.
