I became aware of South Africa at a young age. South Africa had refused to allow Arthur Ashe to enter the country to compete in a tennis match. I was an ardent sports fan and much of my knowledge and awareness of the world came in the context of sports. In that vein the banning of the Republic of South Africa from the Olympics gave me more information about apartheid. Finally I read James Michener's book on South Africa, which put the events of the time into more context. This short look at the country's history gave needed information for many people who knew only the headlines of the last thirty years.

I thought the book does a very good job of highlighting the important points for American readers of a complex history of South Africa.
