South Africa Since Apartheid by Sean Sheehan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In 1994, for the first time in South Africa's history, the entire population was allowed to vote. The lead up to this momentous event is covered in this book which looks at the apartheid system and how it came to be destroyed. The book then goes on to assess the progress South Africa has made since its first government that represented the intrests of the black population was elected, and looks at its social and economic problems. The role of individuals, such as Nelson Mandela, and the impact on individuals is considered throughout, providing an insight into what ordinary South Africans faced and still face today. This title supports the South Africa option on the GCSE modern world history specifications. It can also be used to support Citizenship studies as topical issues are discussed, such as the growing Aids crisis in South Africa. The text uses primary sources, such as quotes from individuals, which allow the reader to evaluate how historical movements, like apartheid, affected ordinary people.
