Picking up where David Yudelman's The Emergence of Modern South Africa: State, Capital, and the Incorporation of Organized Labor on the South African Gold Fields, 1902-1939 (Contributions in Comparative Colonial Studies) this book seeks to complete the picture of the development of South Africa. However it primarily views this through a post-apartheid lens where there is a good versus evil approach where the 'indigenous' people are always suppressed by the 'evil' people from outside.

This is a narrow minded view. the idea that South Africa's history is primarily one of 'conquest' and 'Apartheid' is a mistaken view. Afrikaners lived in South Africa for two hundred years before the advent of Apartheid. The 'conquest' of South Arica was one that also involved Zulus conquering others. This book seems to ignore this diverse history, especially as it relates to the Coloured people and the Indian/Asian population of South Africa. This is unjust and an unfair telling of history, especially as it ignores the evils of the Boer War.

But this is history as it is being told.
