Area Handbook for the Republic of South Africa.
Kaplan, Irving; And Others
This volume is one of a series of handbooks designed to be useful to military, and other personnel who need a convenient compilation of basic facts about the social, economic, political, and military institutions and practices of various countries. The emphasis is on objective description of the nation's present society and the kinds of possible or probable changes that might be expected in the future. This book is based on a sampling of many published sources, cited in a 40 page bibliography. Also appended is a glossary of Afrikaans and English terms. Another appendix, on South West Africa (Namibia), is included because the Republic of South Africa continues to treat it as a province although its League of Nations mandate was terminated by the United Nations.
