2. A-Z of South African Politics on PC disk


SOUTH AFRICAN politics used to be simple. There was right and wrong, black and white, the powerful and the disempowered, the oppressed and the oppressors, the voters and the disenfranchised.

It was relatively easy to find your way around and work out who and what fitted into these categories. That changed in 1990, fortunately.

Now, after four years of relative political freedom, the country boasts a bewildering array of personalities, organisations and institutions, many of them new and unknown.

The Weekly Mail & Guardian's A-Z of South African Politics - The Essential PC Database - is the work of 28 experts in all aspects of the political structure of South Africa. With 182 profiles, 57 organisations, 18 issues, a brief chronology of South African history, vital statistics, office-bearers and contact numbers, it offers an under-the-skin feel for the country's politics in at this crucial time in its history.

It is available on PC disk (in both Dos and Windows formats) that includes a powerful and easy to use full-text search engine.

PRICE South/Southern Africa: SA Rands R99 International US$40 (includes airmail postage).
