It contributes to my investigation of how democracy came into South Africa as it shows the willingness of FW De Klerk to work with the African National Congress as it says that he lifted the ban on the ANC. This source is useful as it gives an overview of what had happened during the time period and gives an objective and balanced account, the writer has also used a variety of primary sources to put this source together. This source however, does have limitations as it may be one-sided and only reflect the point of view of the writer. This source is also valid as it comes from a history website. It is reliable when studied with other sources but is not reliable on its own.

Source J was written by Matthew James Graham. The author of the source also has a degree of Phd in History. The source contributes to my investigation as it discusses the unbanning of the ANC, which shows the willingness of FW De Klerk to work with them. It also discusses the willingness of De Klerk to negotiate with the ANC to end Apartheid.
