South Africa’s Yesterdays by Readers Digest is a wonderfully illustrated journey back in time. “This book is designed to provide an intriguing glimpse, largely through the windows of contemporary comment and illustration, of our recent past. The timespan is about a century; the subject matter is social rather than political; the issues are reported rather than argued. In conceiving the volume we did not set out to tell the full story of South Africa, to describe in any detail the great and often controversial events of the century of turbulence and change, but instead to create a kind of national family album, one which reflects the day-to-day preoccupations of the parents, grandparents and great grandparents of today’s South Africans.” –
