Gold, diamonds, Great Trek, Boer war, apartheid, Mandela: the history of South Africa.

This course examines the people's and their history, beginning with the Dutch settlers, continuing with the Native issue and the Great Trek, followed by the mineral revolutions and the Boer War, and finally race politics and Apartheid. Like the diamonds discovered there, South Africa is multi-faceted, presenting a varieties of shapes and sizes, hues and tones, but not always brilliance and clarity. Based in Pretoria, the class will travel to Johannesburg, Kimberley, Bloemfontein, and Cape Town to experience South African history first hand.
