Coloured, a Profile of Two Million South Africans

Front Cover
Human & Rousseau, 1974 - Colored people (South Africa). - 548 pages
This is a book about a heterogeneous section of the South African society usually classed in legal and administrative terms as 'Coloured'. Their numbers total about two million although there are some who say the real figure is closer to three million. Inevitably, it must highligh a vast and at times moving tapestry of inadequacies and injustices for which many South Africans, in an historical and contemporary context, are responsible.
