The emergence of democratic South Africa in 1994 from the tragedy and devastation of apartheid is one of the most significant events of the past century, and remains inspirational to millions of oppressed people throughout the world. Despite predictions of intensified violence and possibly civil war, the predominantly peaceful transition from a racially based police state to a strong global voice for democracy is a remarkable achievement. Clarence Tshitereke has written an important and well-researched book on the experiences with economic policy debates and directions, and the triumph of neoliberalism as the dominant development paradigm. To support the analysis, he examines the history of the country's gold mining industry and its influence, not only in shaping repressive apartheid laws and institutions, also in moulding the postapartheid economic environment.
