Politicians and Apartheid
Trailing in the people's wake

This publication explores/hypothesises why apartheid was abandoned by South Africa's ruling white National Party. In this publication, written in the early years of South Africa's democracy, apartheid's decline is examined under three categories: occupational, geographical and political apartheid. It is thus of great historical and sociological interest to researchers and theorists.
