About this book:

It has been more than a decade since the last illustrated history of South Africa has appeared. Far-reaching changes have since affected not only the country, but also the writing of history. The New History of South Africa brims with fresh insights and a fresh approach to the story of this turbulent and fascinating country.

The book starts with prehistory, through early mankind, the Khoikhoi, slaves, the growing working class, the great migration of the pre-colonial times and later, diamonds and gold, local war at the end of the 19th century and world wars which impacted locally, political organisation and resistance and the transition of 1994, ending with an exploration of the unexpected dynamics of a new society.

Up-to-date international research is woven into a readable narrative history written by 28 of South Africa's top historians and edited by two heavy-weight authorities.
