The main argument of this book is that economic sanctions are effective instruments of change in South Africa. The contributors provide a view inside South Africa as well as a reflection of the emerging humanitarian global system. They set out to demonstrate, both theoretically and empirically, lessons in the use and effectiveness of international and non-governmental economic sanctions in influencing the internal affairs of other nations in order to limit human rights violations. After an introductory chapter on effectve sanctions and the economic impact in South Africa, contributed chapters show that the international legal basis for racial equality in the world is not spent. Others point to the role of non-governmental organizations in pressuring corporations and banks, the possibility of influencing ruling elites, the shift in US policy to include sanctions in its anti-apartheid stance and the replacement of Western military support of apartheid by growing international economic prohibition of new investments and limitations of trade. Central to the book is an examination of how the economics and politics of South Africa have been moved toward negotiations by both external and internal anti-apartheid pressures.
