Summary

'Sweden vs Apartheid' examines the effort by the Swedish government and civil society in Sweden to abolish the system of apartheid that was instituted in South Africa in 1948. There are many reasons why this book is important. It explores the foreign policy 'posture' of a state, looks at Sweden's neutrality policy which embraced the idea of international solidarity with weaker states and groups, and examines the first Western state to adopt an active anti-apartheid stance when such a position was quite unpopular in the West. The analysis blends both international relations and comparative political approaches to take a critical look at the role played by Sweden in the defeat of the apartheid system.
