 "David Welsh, one of the authors of Ending Apartheid (Longman, 2011), has written probably the best recent single volume survey of the transition, The Rise and Fall of Apartheid (Jonathan Ball, 2009), a magnum opus that combines depth of analysis with a refreshing lack of ponderous academic prose. In this new book, he and Jack Spence have written a lively and concise account that extends beyond 1994 into the present century. Published in a series that combines serious academic synthesis with a style (and length) that makes complex historical events accessible to non-specialists, undergraduates and senior high school students, this new book is an example of what can happen (all too rarely, I am sorry to say) when compression meets erudition."
