Please post in the forum for the day a short essay in response to this question:
From World War II to the present, Latin American and African countries have undergone a succession of attempts at civilian democratic governments, single-party governments, military dictatorships run by oligarchies, and individual dictatorships. In Africa, civil war or at least rioting and civil unrest has disrupted the peaceful transfer of power when election results were contested.
Consider the following:
Perhaps the most interesting example of transfer of power from an elite group to the majority of the people is the Union of South Africa. How did South Africa attempt to avoid the bloodshed of retribution and purges of the opposition that often accompanied changes of power in other African and Latin American nations? How successful was it?
