South Africa: A Botched Civilization? examines how South African novelists, both Black and white, portray the impact of racial conflict on the identities of both the oppressed and the oppressor. This book gives an in-depth analysis of several major authors and focuses on prejudice and its consequences. The discussion of racism and identity is of central importance to the history and the present of South Africa. While the book focuses on literature of the era of segregation and of apartheid, the analysis of the novels reveals barriers to past, present, and future racial progress in South Africa.
