In 1994, with the advent of majority rule, the new South African government faced the hopeful, yet sobering task of negotiating the country's past while crafting its future. Included in this process was South Africa's armaments industry, which had been an important pillar of the thoroughly discredited apartheid government. This book explores the significant historical and ideological obstacles the new South Africa overcame and the rehabilitation of the arms industry in the 1990s to serve and ultimately contribute to the country's redevelopment.

Henk (U.S. Air War College) is well qualified to reveal the development of South Africa's armaments industry. South Africa's Achievement in the arms industry is astonishing, for under apartheid it faced limited resources and international sanctions. Yet the regime managed to foster manufacturing of excellent weapons in a short time (1976?89) and without export markets....Apartheid is gone and South Africa has changed; nuclear bombs have been dismantled, the arms manufacturing reorganized but the industrypreserved. Summing Up: RECOMMENDED. Graduate students and practitioners. -- F.L.
