South Africa


Holdings on South Africa and its surrounding region are robust. Strengths include the colonial period, the rise of apartheid and development of black "homelands," the antiapartheid movement, and the immediate postapartheid political and social transition. Government documents, especially commission reports, and publications of nationalist groups (the ANC, FRELIMO, SWAPO, etc.), both legal and underground, are well represented. Photographs, posters, and audiovisual materials are also noteworthy.
