With its focus on the presidencies of Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki, Politics in South Africa presents a critical balance sheet of the achievements and shortcomings of South Africa's new democractic governments. Tom Lodge, one of South Africa's most notable political commentators, sifts though media sources, reports, polls, and surveys to provide readers with an extensive record of contemporary history and politics in South Africa. Lodge examines the government's successes and failures with instituting land reform, integrating local governments into national politics, countering corruption, and bringing democracy and civic culture to a nation facing significant challenges. Important material on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the 2000 municipal elections, the leadership capability of the ANC, and South Africa's international and regional roles is included. Politics in South Africa provides a detailed and authoritative guide to South Africa's complex political landscape.show more
