Summary
"In these lectures, Davenport explores what he calls 'one of the most remarkable turnabouts in history, ' the recent dramatic events in South Africa. He begins by looking at the changes that set the stage for the demise of apartheid, and then at the challenges facing the new administration of Nelson Mandela after the May 1994 elections. The Government of National Unity had to build a new society out of old bricks, with all the handicaps of an economy run down by sanctions and with a school system that had almost collapsed and, in the process, left large numbers of people unemployed." "Davenport examines the process of reconciliation among the various elements of South African society, and explains how a host of problems that might have undermined peace-making efforts were overcome. He ends with an up-to-date analysis of the making of the new constitution, a process set against this politically volatile background."--Jacket
