Very Good. 043508089X On April 27, 1994, South Africa is scheduled to hold its first democratic all-race elections. This date is of phenomenal significance to this racially torn nation. How did this momentous occasion come to be? WHO is behind the violence that has shrouded South Africa's transition to democracy? WHAT is 'Inkathagate'? WHEN did this new path to democracy take shape? WHERE does South Africa go from here? WHY did de Klerk let Mandela out? HOW did CODESA get the talks going? With the unsparing eye of a journalist, South African Reuters correspondent Rich Mkhondo chronicles the fascinating process of his country's transition to a non-racial democracy-the making of a new nation, a process laced with excitement and disappointment, triumphs and pitfalls, redistribution and abuse of power. '* Rich Mkhondo, currently a correspondent for Reuters, the world's largest news and information service, has covered anti-apartheid activities since 1984. He has interviewed most of South Africa's leaders, black and white. In 1986, Mkhondo spent eight months as a press fellow with The Philadelphia Inquirer, and he has traveled extensively in the United States. He is a graduate of Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa, where he was one of the first blacks to be admitted to a white South African college. 175 pages.
