From the Paper:

"The Situation of South Africa South Africa has a unique history, which in many ways, forms a paradox. This forms a topic of interest for scholars, who study South Africa, readers, who see examples of South Africa from novels such as Alan Paton's Cry the Beloved Country, and firsthand accounts, those South Africans who live a life surrounded by poverty. South Africa is a land of extensive mineral wealth--in fact, it is the world's leading producer of such as gold and diamonds--the very symbols of wealth. It is home to some of the world's oldest fossils, and is home to a wide range of agricultural crops, and exports goods as well. South Africa also has a wide supply of coal and uranium for energy. This is a portrait of a country who sounds quite wealthy, but here again is an example of the paradox that surrounds South Africa. "
