The central role played by the United Nations in supporting the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, and in focusing world-wide attention on the country is chronicled in this publication. In an extensive introduction, the UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali gives an overview of the UN's contribution to South Africa's historic transformation. The texts of over 200 key documents relating to the struggle between 1948-1994 are gathered together. Statements by President Nelson Mandela, Olive Tambo, Chief Albert J. Luthuli and other leading figures are included. This reference book should be of interest to contemporary historians, journalists, academics, students, policymakers, and anyone interested in the long fight against apartheid or in the work of the UN.
