Coming fifteen years after South Africa's achievement of majority rule, this book takes a critical and searching look at the country's past. It presents South Africa's past in an objective, clear, and refreshing manner. With chapters contributed by ten of the best historians of the country, the book elaborately weaves together new data, interpretations, and perspectives on the South African past, from the Early Iron Age to the eve of the mineral revolution on the Rand. Its findings incorporate new sources, methods, and concepts, for example providing new data on the relations between Africans and colonial invaders and rethinking crucial issues of identity and consciousness. This book represents an important reassessment of all the major historical events, developments, and records of South Africa - written, oral, and archaeological - and will be an important new tool for students and professors of African history worldwide.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'It is both a credit and a boon to the study of South African history to have all this in one place.' Journal of African History
"Erudite essays by ten top historians of South Africa both summarize the state-of-the art historiography of the country and chart new pathways.... Strongest on political and social history, but with keen insights into intellectual life... this splendid volume supersedes analogous earlier Oxbridge syntheses of the country and will long remain a scholarly landmark.... Essential." - Choice
