Abstract

Attitudes of pluralism have dominated the development of South African society since the first white settlement some three centuries ago. During the last two decades the segregation policy of Apartheid has reached a final stage, that of Separate Development. The Separate Development scheme was initiated in 1963 and reflects a radical change in attitudes toward plural development. The scheme is basically an attempt to transform a well-established growth pattern. This article examines the impact of pluralism on the geographical landscape of South Africa and on the evolution, nature, and transformation of the society and the economy, with particular attention to the processes involved. In the analysis of these processes, several themes emerge, of which the two most significant are integration versus separation and the dual motivation of political policy and economic desirability.
