"South Africa: The rise and fall of apartheid provides a detailed, informed, and highly readable introduction to the major themes concerning apartheid South Africa, its development, evolution, and ultimately its collapse. It offers a quick and informative entry point for those new to South African history, covering a broad overview of key political, societal and economic issues. What makes this book particularly useful is the section assessing the diverse historiography, supplemented by a range of key primary documents from across the apartheid era. An analytical and accessible insight into apartheid South Africa."

"Clark and Worger's South Africa remains one of the most relevant yet accessible texts for students of Apartheid. Including key timelines, source documents and analytical essays this 3rd edition shows the universal demand for this important work which has been updated to incorporate life in post-Apartheid South Africa up to 2015."
Nicholas J. Evans, University of Hull, UK
"The 3rd edition of Clark & Worger's South Africa is a wonderfully concise but extremely thorough account of apartheid, which makes the complexities and contradictions of modern South African history accessible to undergraduate students. The addition of electronic resources, films, and suggestions for further reading in the the 3rd edition not only complement the combination of narrative and primary sources within the text, but also serve as a valuable tool for instructional course design and student research. It is an ideal text for an undergraduate classroom."
Molly McCullers, University of West Georgia, USA
"This revised edition offers a timely and relevant introduction to a complex and still contested period of South Africa's past. It is thoughtfully expanded to include primary sources and recent historiography which emphasize the social dimensions and repercussions of apartheid. Teachers and students of South African history will find the historical documents and the updated further reading (with new visual and online sources) sections particularly useful resources."
