"On his way into Parliament on 2 February 1990 FW de Klerk turned to his wife Marike and said, referring to his forthcoming speech: Àfter today South Africa will never again be the same.'" "Did white South Africa crack, or did its leadership yield sufficiently and just in time to avert a revolution?" "The transformation has been called a miracle, belying gloomy predictions of race war in which the white minority went into a laager and fought to the last drop of blood. Why did it happen?" "Professor Welsh views the topic against the backdrop of a long history of conflict spanning apartheid's rise and demise, and the liberation movement's suppression and subsequent resurrection. His view is that the movement away from apartheid to majority rule would have taken far longer and been much bloodier were it not for the changes undergone by Afrikaner nationalism itself." "There were turning points, such as the Soweto uprising of 1976, but few believed that the transition from white domination to inclusive democracy would occur as soon - and as relatively peacefully - as it did. In effect, however, a multitude of different factors led the ANC and the National Party to see that neither side could win the conflict on its own terms." "Utterly dissimilar in background, culture, beliefs and political style, Nelson Mandela and FW de Klerk were an unlikely pair of liberators. But both soon recognised that they were dependent on each other to steer the transformation process through to its conclusion."--Jacket

Ironic victory : liberalism in post-liberation South Africa ( Book )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 194 libraries worldwide
"How has Liberalism faced the challenges of racism? Is there more than one kind of liberalism? And what does the future hold for liberalism in a country where its spoken principles are newly entrenched, but where its name is so contentious?" "Ironic victory collects nineteen essays on liberalism in South Africa written since 1994 by prominent individuals in South Africa and abroad. From diverse and often opposing perspectives, the essays cover notions of liberalism and the currency of the term, its status among South Africans, and its present and future usefulness as a way of understanding and approaching contemporary politics, education, affirmative action, the press, law, and the South African constitution."--Jacket
