This edition of the Journal for Contemporary History consists of three thematic fields. It starts with themes on South African contemporary history – with articles by Johnson on student resistance against apartheid at Fort Hare and two articles on the 1978 Cassinga raid during the Border War (Muller and Liebenberg). Secondly, the burning issue of land is addressed by Erasmus, Tarisayi, and Dushimimana and Zaaiman. This edition ends with a contribution by Schellnack-Kelly on history as a school subject.
