About the book:

This is a critique of various theoretical models of discrimination - with a focus on the pioneering constructs developed by Gary Becker - and an assessment of the actual results of racially discriminatory economic policies in South Africa. The author examines the economic rationale of apartheid, describes how a more or less constant wage level for Blacks was created, and explains who has gained and who has lost as a result of this system. He then analyzes the economic effects of trade and investment boycotts to determine whether such sanctions actually are useful in ending racial discrimination.
