The paper outlines the history of South Africa and the implementation of apartheid, which is considered to be the root of many problems South Africa faces today. The paper discusses how internally, the structure of government and society in South Africa are troubled and full of power struggles. The paper also looks at the major social problems facing South Africa, namely, the widespread outbreak of the HIV/AIDS virus and malaria, corruption and rampant crime in almost all parts of the country. The paper concludes that despite all this, South Africa has overcome a significant amount of internal and external conflict in its rather short history. The paper uses MLA style footnotes but does not include a source page.

From the Paper:

"South Africa, at a glance, is a vibrant and magnificent country. Located at the southernmost tip of the continent of Africa, it is comprised of arid deserts and rocky mountains, as well as lush green forests and tropical flora. It shares its nearly 3,000 kilometer coastline with both the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans. At a closer look, it has a unique political system, which serves a diverse myriad of inhabitants. Cape Town is the legislative capital, which means it contains the Parliament and many government offices; Pretoria is the administrative capital, which means it is the location of the head offices of the armies, police force, correctional services, and other national departments; and Bloemfontein is the judicial capital, where the high courts and Supreme Court are located."
