Apartheid will not be abolished in South Africa because of a change of heart on the part of the whites but because the pressures for change have become irresistable. President F.W.de Klerk must either come to terms with the black majority or see the entire structure of South African society collapse under the weight of black power and world isolation. The authors argue that two men hold the key to a peaceful power transition - Nelson Mandela, leading a coalition of black interests, and F.W.de Klerk. If they cannot work out a peaceful resolution of the country's prolems before the next white elections, which are due in 1994, South Africa is likely to descend into chaos and bloodshed.
