The nation of South Africa has been through its share of struggles. From British colonialism to the brutal system of apartheid, South Africans—especially Black South Africans—throughout history have worked hard to build and hold on to their unique culture in challenging times. Readers explore both the history and present cultural environment of South Africa in this carefully updated guide to Africa's southernmost nation. Fact boxes, full-color photographs, maps, and recipes are presented alongside the comprehensive main text, and sidebars provide additional information, including biographies of those South Africans who are examples of global citizenship.
