How Things Fell Apart A Short History of South Africa, 1488 to Present Day Written by John Glover

Glover uses letters he has gathered over the course of his study to shed light on the enduring harmful effects of the apartheid.

Over a decade after apartheid officially ended, South Africans and the world can still feel the effects of this human catastrophe. In How Things Fell Apart: A Short History of South Africa, 1488 to Present Day, African history scholar John Glover presents black-and-white details on the roots of this struggle and provides evidence of the rich culture that was stripped from the people of South Africa.

Glover uses letters he has gathered over the course of his study to shed light on the enduring harmful effects of the apartheid.

He quotes Sir Alfred Milner, British governor of Cape Colony (who wrote to Reverend James Green on December 12, 1901): “As for the indigenous South Africans, one thing which appears to me quite evident is that a distinction must be drawn in the case of the natives between personal and political rights. A political equality of white and black is impossible…In any South African Parliament the interests of the blacks should be specially represented…This could be best done by white men, not elected but nominated for that particular purpose…As regards to personal rights. I hold that those of the natives should be just as clearly defined, and just as sacred as those of the white men. I do not, however, think that they need always be, or ought always to be the same.”

A critical and systematic look at the South African history, How Things Fell Apart is ideal for anyone who wants to learn about this tragic period in history or revisit a land of prolific lineage.
