Turning Points in Transition
Turning Points in Transition is published by the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation to inform and educate readers on that remarkable period of South Africanâ€™s history when our nation made its massive leap from an oppressive past to a democratic future. Drawing on the knowledge and skills of seasoned commentators, historians and people actively engaged in leadership during the miracle of transition, this book provides the step by step process characterized by achievements, temporary setbacks and neutralized threats that led to the birth of a new nation in 1994. The book captures vividly the burning issues of that period and how they were dealt with whilst providing us with descriptions of events that allow us to travel back in time and fully appreciate the transition period in our history.
