THE MODERN AFRICAN ELITE OF SOUTH AFRICA LYNETTE DREYER IN CAPE TOWN
Hard cover with dust cover, 186 pages. Very good condition. Under 1kg. This study profiles the lives of 60 eminent Black Africans who have reached the top of their professions and social hierarchy in South African society despite a political system designed to maintain the pre-eminence of Whites. It outlines their backgrounds, and their perceptions of a new South Africa and argues that White fears of a Black South African government destroying the economy of South Africa are unfounded. The individuals chosen for the study represent business, religion, the professions and community life, and therefore seeks to represent those who are poised to play a decisive role in the transformation of South Africa as white domination comes under threat.
