It has been shaped by encounters between European and African individuals and groups. Early encounters as described in Chapter 1, "African Worlds, African Voices," show how the first European settlers were often relying on the help of African individuals and groups.

The South Africa Reader is an extraordinarily rich guide to the history, culture, and politics of South Africa. With more than eighty absorbing selections, the Reader provides many perspectives on the country's diverse peoples, its first two decades as a democracy, and the forces that have shaped its history and continue to pose challenges to its future, particularly violence, inequality, and racial discrimination. Among the selections are folktales passed down through the centuries, statements by seventeenth-century Dutch colonists, the songs of mine workers, a widow's testimony before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and a photo essay featuring the acclaimed work of Santu Mofokeng. Cartoons, songs, and fiction are juxtaposed with iconic documents, such as "The Freedom Charter" adopted in 1955 by the African National Congress and its allies and Nelson Mandela's "Statement from the Dock" in 1964. Cacophonous voices—those of slaves and indentured workers, African chiefs and kings, presidents and revolutionaries—invite readers into ongoing debates about South Africa's past and present and what exactly it means to be South African.

Have not finished reading it, but as a South African born American, I am looking forward to reading the different version of SA history from what I was taught in school. Always two sides to every story.

I recently visited South Africa. This book provided a variety of essays that set a nice foundation on the complex history of this beautiful country. The people of South Africa are very passionate about their country and these essays help set the background for their country's extraordinary legacy.
