Sampie Terreblanche argues that socio-economic transformation has yet to take place in South Africa. He traces political-economic developments from the 1650s up to the present, examines the global political and economic context of the 1980s and 1990s and evaluates the government's performance since 1994, focusing on affirmative action. He also analyses the strategies devised by American and British companies with a presence in South Africa, in collaboration with the Mineral and Energy Complex (MEC), to circumscribe the ANC's future policies.
Sampie Terreblanche is Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Stellenbosch. He is also the author of "A History of Inequality in South Africa 1652-2002".
