South African politics - an online introduction

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: Peter Limb (Faculty), Aug 25, 2003
Comment: This is an excellent introduction to South African political history. It is well
illustrated with relevant and high quality images and supported with solid
resources and sensible links.

Technical Remarks:

The site encourages student interaction not just via rompting a few questions
but by encouraging students to participate in scholarly networks. Among the
questions are useful comparative exercises. The links lead to a wealth of meaty
primary historical sources that enable the student to go beyond the superficial
knowledge of themes that is, alas, too common on many websites claiming to teach
history. In addition, there are links to a number of useful full-text journal
articles. There is a nice balance across different periods. Some of the maps
might have been a little sharper in focus.
