An African Volk: The Apartheid Regime and its Search for Survival

The demise of apartheid was one of the great achievements of postwar history, sought after and celebrated by a progressive global community. An African Volk looks at these events from the other side. It explores how the apartheid regime strove to maintain power as the world of white empire gave way to a post-colonial environment that repudiated racial hierarchy. It focuses on how the regime attempted to turn the new political climate to its advantage.
