Show Summary Details


This book has emphasized the key role played by various capitalist groupings in shaping Apartheid. It has shown that this impact was not uniform, and cannot be understood without simultaneously taking account of the effects of various forms of African resistance and the course of conflict within the state. This concluding chapter draws together the various strands of the struggle and accommodation identified in the book and produces a composite picture of the processes whereby the influx control, as a central pillar of the Apartheid system, was constructed during the 1950s. It then summarises the main historiographical and theoretical conclusions of this study.
