      Originally published in 1986, this newly revised title in the Enchantment of the World series discusses the huge changes in South Africa, from apartheid to the present transformation. In 1980, Blauer and LaurČ co-authored the breakthrough photo-essay South Africa: Coming of Age under Apartheid, so it's no surprise that they root their candid commentary on the present scene in an accurate, in-depth history. Along with discussing the role of Nelson Mandela and the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the authors consider religion, sports, literature, music, and much more, making clear that despite the changeover, huge economic inequalities still exist, as do problems such as AIDS, unemployment, and crime. Well-chosen, beautifully reproduced full-color photographs, clear maps, a time line, and "fast facts" complete the handsomely designed, readable package... For more on South Africa, pull out Rob Bowden's The Changing Face of South Africa (2002) and Benjamin Pogrund's Nelson Mandela (2004). Other revised series entries include Iraq and Taiwan.
