Drawing on the experience of neighbouring countries and on interviews with politicians, township leaders and businessmen, Sebastian Mallaby, The Economist's Africa correspondent, examines the interlocking conflicts that will determine South Africa's future.
He discusses the quest for a new constitution, the problem of AIDS, the continuity of tribal tensions and the threat of a violent white backlash. He also considers what the world should expect from the continent's most sophisticated economy: an East-Asian style powerhouse, or another African disappointment.
