The author comes off as an apologist for apartheid. He is critical of the Nationalist regime over dispensing with habeus corpus, however he is not critical of the basic idea of apartheid. I'll take into account that his book was written after the Belgian crisis and before the successes of the American civil rights era. Even with this taken into account, I would expect better of an American journalist.
His incessant use of newspaper articles is repetitive and after the first dozen adds nothing. I have to admit that I was unable to finish this book. ( )
