This book by Hein Marais is a significant, comprehensive and in-depth account of the political and economic transformation of South Africa. In fact, Marais started his analysis far back in history, giving the reader a perspective on the growth of South Africa as a polarised society and how the armed struggle against apartheid started and eventually succeeded. As part of the bigger picture, the author also touches on the major issues of health (HIV and AIDS and TB) and education, as obstacles on the road to reconstruction of a viable society in postapartheid South Africa.
