Growing up in a Divided Society

Sandra Burman

What does it mean to be a child in South Africa today? This question is answerable only in the context of arpartheid, the legalized separation of "races" that determines all aspects of life in that country. InĀ Growing Up in a Divided Society, scholars from a wide range of disciplines explore the devastating, pervasive, and profound effects of apartheid and racism on the children of South Africa.
