Apartheid vertigo, the dizzying sensation following prolonged oppression and delusions of skin colour, is the focus of this book. Drawing on evidence from interviews, observation, press articles, reports, research monographs and history, this project deconstructs the idea of visible differences between black nationals and black foreign nationals. It demonstrates that in South Africa violent conflict lurks on the surface and it can burst through the fragile limits set upon it, with the potential to escalate into ethnic cleansing
