  • Abstract:  Merle Lipton is known to historians of twentieth century South Africa for her major book, Capitalism and apartheid, which analysed the relationship between segregation / apartheid policies and economic development. Though originally trained as a historian at the University of Cape Town, where in 1963, under the name Merle Babrow, she completed a thesis that looked critically at the work of George McCall Theal, since the early 1970s she has worked from England, mainly not as a historian, but as a researcher and consultant on current issues relating to South Africa, so keeping abreast of the way in which South Africa moved away from high apartheid to its present-day democracy. Now she has produced a relatively short, but densely argued book that considers the ways in which scholars have written about the origins, development and eventual collapse of segregation / apartheid.
